Aerial Ladder Training at Sportscenter

Aerial ladder trucks are used for rescue, ventilation, and extinguishing large structure fires.

The Owensboro Fire Department has four different aerial apparatus and provides mutual aid when requested to Daviess County Fire Department.

Lieutenant Jacob (Gus) Vanover climbed the 75-foot ladder on Quint 2 as part of a joint training exercise at the Owensboro Sportscenter.

With a 75-foot aerial, the truck is capable of reaching four to five stories in the air. Battalion Chief Corey Gant says OFD could pump 1000 to 1200 gallons of water per minute into a structure to knock down a fire.
