Rockport’s New Fire Truck

This past Saturday I had the pleasure to participate in the Rockport Fire Department’s wetdown party for the department’s new ladder truck. The celebration in honor of the new truck is a christening of sorts, with the ladder truck being anointed with water before its first call into duty.

The wetdown party featured members of the fire department, local officials, and special guests. It was a joyful occasion, but importantly it signifies the arrival of an excellent public safety tool for the residents of Rockport. This new ladder truck will pay dividends and in time will save both lives and property.

Posted below are a few photos of the ladder truck featuring Larry Libert at the wheel, and Kevin Beaulieu in the cab explaining the truck’s features.
