From The Chief
Chief Karl Lieb
"This is one of three standardized units that position us exactly where we need to be when responding to urban structural calls. Pairing the 107' ladder with forward-facing cameras on either side of the apparatus nails tiller placement to accelerate setup."
Ron Jensen is the sales representative from Superior Equipment that worked directly with the Salt Lake City Fire Department on their Arrow XT Ascendant 107' Tiller Heavy-Duty Aerial Ladder. Superior is a full line sales and service distributor of fire apparatus and equipment for Nevada and Utah.
