New Ladder Truck

Ladder-Truck-Photo-One

Madisonville Fire Department begin looking for ways to replace its 1987 102' Rear Mount Ladder truck a few years back. The truck had numerous mechanical problems and was a open cab vehicle, which posed a serious risk to firefighters. Due to the overwhelming cost of this truck, the fire department applied for a AFG Assistance to Firefighters Grant. The AFG grant was turned down 5 years in a row.  In 2013 the AFG allowed vehicle grants to be applied for as a regional grant.

MFD decided to apply for this using the regional approach. It took into account all the run volume, vehicles, and staffing for the entire county.  In late 2013 MFD was awarded its AFG grant for $1,100,000 for its new ladder truck. It was also awarded $25,000 for additional NFPA required equipment, for the truck. MFD members looked at several different options for a new truck. It was determined that a Mid-Mount truck would best suit our needs.
