Milton's truck will be similar to the one above, deployed in Ann Arbor, Mich.
The City of Milton Fire Department recently signed a contract for a new 100-foot ladder truck to be built by the Sutphen Corporation.
Firefighters spent three days in Dublin, Ohio in March fine-tuning the custom fire truck - inspecting each component and its fabrication and construction process. The team was able to see, touch, climb on, sit in and kick the tires of similar trucks in the construction process. Finally, they met with engineers to inspect the truck's plans - which proved extremely valuable as some changes were discovered.
The fully operational truck is expected to be delivered by October.
