Gainesville’s newest Fire Truck is one-of-a-kind. The 100 foot platform truck has been in production for the past year at Pierce Production Plant in Appleton, Wisconsin. Gainesville Fire Chief Jerome Yarbrough said this truck is truly a “Gainesville” truck. “We ordered this truck with a Red ladder and a Gainesville “G”. The truck will be used to run calls every day responding to multi-level structures and accidents,” Yarbrough said.


The truck was paid for with SPLOST VII funding and includes the latest diagnostic and camera technology. These trucks are typically replaced every 20 years.
