Owen Sound will spend nearly $2.1 million to buy a new aerial platform fire truck with 100-foot ladder for its emergency services department. The vehicle will replace the service’s front-line, 25-year-old Nova Quintech 100-foot rear-mount aerial platform fire truck. Council voted Monday to purchase the new truck from Manitoba-based Fort Garry Fire Trucks. A fleet strategy, presented by fire officials during council’s 2017 budget process, recommended replacing the current 100-foot aerial truck in 2020. About $550,000 of the cost will be funded from a fire equipment reserve, while the remaining $1.52 million will be and paid back over time. The new truck will have a mid-mount aerial device which will enhance its maneuverability and turning radius so the unit can access tighter areas. And an aerial fire truck with 100-foot ladder can reach the top of an eight-storey building.
