That looks like Station 4 on Thornton, not Station 3 on Maple. There's a lot more room at 4's than 3's.Truck11 said:two pics of Tower 3 at quarters after 9/11 when the citizens of Akron and several surrounding communities put together enough money to give the FDNY some new rigs. I was in 3rd grade when 9/11 happened, but I remember the outpour of monetary support from people including my own parents for the FDNY, it still makes me smile to this day thinking of all the people who came together and helped pay for new rigs for the then very broken FDNY. Enough of that, again these pics are reposted from this site.
Check the first page of this thread , reply #12 for a pic of Ladder 8. With the exception of L4, the other ladder companies have the 75' Pierce single axle trucks.CFFDEngine5 said:thanks again for the pics still cant find on of ladders 7,8
Does that mean the every ladder has to be able to reach, or they have to have at least one ladder that is capable? I am asking because I do not know.GRide said:John, I should have been more clear. I understand the weight and cost issues, but I was thinking of it from a perspective of ISO ratings. ISO ladder company ratings state that to receive full credit, the aerial should be "Of sufficient height to reach the roof of any building or 100 feet, whichever is less. ISO prorates the credit if existing equipment has insufficient reach." Even if a department doesn't care about the ISO points, a 2.5 story house that is set back from the street might be too far for a 75' ladder to reach.
I don't know, thankfully my involvement with ISO was nil other than hearing the officers responsible complaining.MATT3045 said:Does that mean the every ladder has to be able to reach, or they have to have at least one ladder that is capable? I am asking because I do not know.
