From The Chief
Chief Keith Sanders
"We have significant traffic congestion and older multi-family complexes that pose significant challenges to fire apparatus maneuvering through traffic and entering narrow complex entrances. Our Ascendant gives us less weight, improved horsepower, and a shorter wheelbase."
Jeff Amlong is the sales representative from Ten-8 Fire Equipment that worked directly with the Sandy Springs Fire Department on their Enforcer Ascendant 110' Heavy-Duty Platform. Ten-8 is a full line sales and service distributor of fire apparatus and equipment for Florida and Georgia.
