American LaFrance

The sad demise of the American LaFrance company in 2014 meant the end of a long history, but there will still be LaFrances on the roads for many years to come.
Halifax still has number of them on its roster, including a pair of quints, one of which is based at Station 9  in Lower Sackville

Numbered 01-144Q, it carries a 28m LTI aerial, with 833 igpm nozzle, pumps at 1750 igpm, carries 25 igal of foam and has a 416 igal booster tank.
The crew had it out today to exercise the aerial ladder.
