Ladder Co. 3 - 1947 Ward LaFrance
Our 1947 Ward LaFrance was an open cab ladder-carrying truck and served as Ladder 3. She featured a four-speed standard drive paired with a straight six Waukesha engine. She boasted a 550 gpm water pump, 300 gallon water tank, and carried a full complement of ground ladders. The apparatus saw service with DFD from 1947 to 1971, when we acquired our first stretching piece - Tower Ladder 43.
Following retirement, the apparatus was sold to Washington, VT.
