Montgomery Firefighters get new ladder truck

Montgomery firefighters at Station No. 6 welcomed the arrival of a brand new ladder truck Friday.

The new Ladder Truck 42 replaces one that was nearly 20 years old, said Lt. Kenny Jones, a Montgomery Fire Department spokesman.

The new truck features new safety features that the old truck did not have and is roomier than the old truck as well, firefighter Quinton Robinson said.

The safety features include a sensor that keeps the truck from going too fast around curves and tandem dual axles that prevent the truck from slipping on a rainy day.

The new truck also does not separate the firefighters traveling on it.

?It is one solid cab, so that way we can all talk to each other,? Robinson said.

Jones said firefighters always love having a new truck.

?It?s like Christmas morning,? he said.
