E-One Ladder Truck Project
May 29, 2019 marks the first day of a 100-day project to refurbish and rebuild components of the Town's E-One Ladder Truck. A 75' Quint truck has been loaned to the Town by the firm refurbishing the E-1. Earlier this year, Town Council approved the refurbishment and rebuilding of the Town's ladder truck in order to extend its usable life and provide maximum value to the citizens it serves. The price of the project is $262,273.

The Ladder Truck refurbishing project is tracking on schedule with no issues! Motor rebuild and painting are complete.
Project is currently on schedule with the following items being complete: full paint job, interior lighting, exterior LED lighting upgrade, axles, brakes, and the HVAC system. The generator install and jackleg rebuilds are currently in progress.
The contractor is having difficulty obtaining the pump needed for the repair. Estimate a 2 month delay in completion. The contractor has provided the Town with a truck while under repair so there will be no impacts to the Town for this delay.
The Fire Chief visited the repair site in Birmingham, Alabama and inspected the progress of the repair.
