Hillsboro Fire Protection District Purchasing A Ladder Truck

(HILLSBORO) The Hillsboro Fire Protection District has placed an order for a ladder truck, which is an apparatus they have never had before. Fire Chief Brian Gaudet says having a ladder truck has been needed for a while.

Chief Gaudet says they considered ordering another pumper truck but then decided on the ladder truck. He says the need for one of those in their area will help, and save the residents on their insurance rates.

Chief Gaudet says they couldn’t just order any ladder truck, they certainly had to “spec” it out.

Due to the backup of 1st responder vehicle, the new Hillsboro Fire Protection District ladder truck will likely be delivered sometime in 2026.
