    Exclamation City of Detroit FD offered free fire truck

    Link to a story of a person who wants to donate a used aerial platform to the City of Detroit Fire Department and they won't call the donor back.

    Its a mid 80's tower, too tall for Detroit fire stations, not meant for inner city use due to that height. Resale value fully loaded, 75k or less. Parts availability is scarce for most of it, non-existant for a lot of it. Great truck for a small town, but for a big city it would not be on the road more than 6 months. Detroit would be SMART to turn it down. That actual tower was one that a volunteer department got rid of because it was to old and worn out.

    Does anyone know if DFD put this donated truck in service? Just curious what company was assigned this truck as I don't think there are many stations that would hold this vehicle.

    I heard it doesn't fit in any of the firehouses, and is being stored in the apparatus garage lot.
