City of Savannah Fire Department Purchases New Ladder Tower 100’ Tractor Drawn Aerial
BRANDON, SD – September 21, 2020 – Spartan Emergency Response, a subsidiary of REV Group, and leading manufacturer of fire apparatus is pleased to announce that the Savannah Fire Department has selected Spartan and its authorized dealer, Peach State Emergency Vehicles, to provide the city with a new Ladder Tower 100’ Tractor Drawn Aerial.
The new apparatus will serve the entire downtown area of Savannah, Georgia and will replace one of two aging 2007 American Lafrance / Ladder Tower Inc. TDAs. Crew safety, reliability, and maneuverability are top priorities for the Savannah Fire Department as they serve one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. Dating back to 1733, the Savannah historic district is paved with narrow cobblestone streets and has a large number of historic buildings, many of which serve as primary residences.
The 100’ TDA is built on a Spartan Gladiator® chassis with the Spartan Advanced Protection System® (APS), standard on Spartan® apparatus. This TDA features a 500 lb. ladder tip load, narrow 14’ outrigger spread, and exceptional equipment and ladder storage to support technical rescue operations. The compact design of the ladder optimizes tiller driver visibility making it safer and more efficient in tight quarters.
“Savannah Fire Department has a long history with Ladder Tower products,” said Jonathan Wyman, sales manager for Peach State Emergency Vehicles. “We are excited for the delivery of this new apparatus which will help them respond to the needs of the community safely, quickly, and efficiently.”
