Fire dept. lands the state's tallest ladder truck

The Beachwood FD took ownership of the 137-foot high ladder truck in October

BEACHWOOD, Ohio — The city’s fire department has a new ladder truck that reaches so high, one might think upon seeing it for the first time that the clouds could be touched from its top step.

In reality, the ladder stretches upward 137 feet, high enough to make it the tallest of its kind among trucks in all of Ohio’s fire departments.

The city took ownership of the $800,000 vehicle in October and then firefighters took about three weeks to attach necessary equipment inside and around the truck.
