The Exeter Township Volunteer Fire Department (ETVFD) is pleased to announce the delivery of the NEW TOWER 25, our brand new 2023 Seagrave Aerialscope Marauder 95' Tower Ladder. The Exeter Township Supervisors, Management, and Community support have made this purchase possible. We would like to thank all of them for their unwavering support over the years.
The ETVFD Apparatus committee has worked together for the past five years to bring this new Tower Ladder to completion to serve the residents of Exeter Township and St. Lawrence Borough for many years to come! The planning for the construction process and financial planning have made a purchase like this possible to help serve the community!
The purchase of the Seagrave Tower Ladder offers firefighters the highest level of fire apparatus made to provide superior safety and long-lasting fire apparatus. The 2023 Seagrave Aerialscope Tower Ladder offers a maximum height of 95' and also offers a reach for offset homes of over 85'. The new Tower Ladder is 46' long, 11' tall, and weighs 80,000 pounds. The Seagrave Aerialscope Tower Ladder is the strongest aerial on the market and offers superior versatility. Made of all stainless steel, the new Tower Ladder offers RollTek protection and all-around airbags in the cab to keep the occupants safe.
ETVFD crews will begin the training process on the new Tower 25, and the plan is to have the new Aerialscope in service in Spring 2024.
