News Release
2019 Pierce Ascendant 107-foot Ladder Truck

Public Invited to Attend Ceremony for New Lebanon Fire District Ladder Truck (Photo) - 08/12/19

The community of Lebanon is invited to join their firefighters in welcoming LFD's newest apparatus into service on Tuesday, August 13 at 5:00 p.m. at Station 31, 1050 W. Oak Street. The truck, a Pierce 107-foot Ascendant aerial apparatus, is the first new ladder truck ever purchased by the district. Previous trucks had been purchased used from other departments across the country. Purchasing a new apparatus not only gives firefighters the latest and greatest safety and technology but also offers valuable warranty and preventative maintenance support from the manufacturer.

During the ceremony Fire Chief Gordon Sletmoe will give a brief speech about the planning and acquisition of the truck and department and community members will then "push" the truck into the apparatus bays, officially placing it into service. The push in is a historic nod back to the early days of firefighting when horse and hand drawn hose wagons and steam engines were employed. When a new piece of equipment was purchased, the firefighters would ceremoniously push it into the apparatus bay, thus readying it for service to the community.
