Ladder 3 operates this 2010 Pierce Arrow XT TDA. This ladder was originally assigned to Ladder 9, however when Ladder 9 was recently shut down, Ladder 3 was assigned their ladder.
From their annual softball games, flag football games, and racing each other to fires to be assigned the first due ladder, there has always been a rivalry between Ladder 3 and Truck 1. Ladder 3 has taken this rivalry to the next level however. In response to Truck 1 putting on the rear of their tower "If you can read this your second due!", Ladder 3 has stuck with the Superman theme of their rig and has put on the back of their ladder "Faster than Truck 1!". I wonder how the members of Truck 1 will respond...
Forget the slogans. Nothing is better than passing the neighboring company's station, siren wailing and horns blasting, while their rig is still on the floor waiting for the crew to pile on.
Oh and yes, this is a very nice tiller.
