Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
August 13, 2012 - A Ride on the New Ladder 2


This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department that began with the page Camden Fire Department: The Fires of the Summer of 2011. On this and other pages in the series you will find pictures and information regarding different events and aspects of the fire service in Camden, New Jersey. 

I spent some time at Liberty Station with the men of Ladder 2 and Rescue 1... who have been jumping in and out of the two pieces of equipment for far too long.... the new Ladder 2 truck had just been placed in service and the men were still training on it. No runs, but a trip to Pathmark to pick up groceries for the day's lunch and dinner, and a stop at the PATCO High Speed Line station to check out an excavation so it would be known what the conditions were in case of a trench collapse. Interesting stuff! 

The new ladder goes up, if memory serves, one hundred and one feet. After watching a couple of the fellows make the climb, I was asked if I wanted to take a crack at it, and yours truly went about two-thirds of the way up, and snapped a few pictures. 

As with the web page covering other Camden Fire Department events, if you can identify anyone that I've missed, please e-mail me. (I'm terrible at at names and faces).
