Congratulations on truck 6, welcome back to service to our area

Great job by all

Outstanding and stay safe

Gorgous truck!

Today, we go back in time to 1954 and beyond, as we look back at HVFD's 1954 American LaFrance Aerial Truck! The 1954 American LaFrance 75' Mid-mount Aerial Truck served in Hamburg until 1975. The 1954 ALF was initially an open cab with a pumping capability of 750 gallons per minute. After being involved in a collision in 1967, the open front cab was replaced with a canopy style cab. The 1954 ALF was sold to the Bellevue Volunteer Fire Department in 1975, where it served many more active years, with a yellow paint job! Pictured are a number of action shot, inspection photos, and even the 1953 specification sheet for the new truck! ... See MoreSee Less

Featured today in our “Ladder Truck Blast From the Past” is our 1975 American LaFrance 100’ Rear-Mount Aerial Truck. The Truck had a canopy cab, meaning it had no rear doors, which limited the amount of spots for firemen to be seated in, especially when compared to modern apparatus. The 100’ straight-stick ladder did not have a bucket on the end, meaning crews had to operate and control master streams while standing on the ladder. The Truck had a pumping capacity of 1500 gallons per minute. The American LaFrance served the Hamburg community until 1992. It was then sold to the Springville Volunteer Fire Department where it served as an active piece of equipment many more years. ... See MoreSee Less
