This week, Westfield firefighters began training with their newest tool–a 123 foot ladder truck. With an impressive reach and the latest in safety technology, this truck will help protect the community as well as the firefighters riding in it.
The truck is specially outfitted with airbags and advanced restraint systems that protect firefighters in the event of a collision. While airbags are common place for cars, this is entirely new technology for firefighters. IMMI, a Westfield business and worldwide leader in advanced safety systems donated their most advanced safety equipment for this new ladder truck. It’s a little piece of mind for those who risk their lives daily protecthing our community.
After finishing training this week, firefighters will begin using the new ladder truck to protect the community.
