    yes. both companies I run with have ladders, both are 102 Ft.

    as an aside, the only department I can think of off the top of my head that has a 125 foot ladder is the Rescue Truck in Syracuse NY. even the other ladders in the department are shorter than that.

    edited because I got the size wrong initially

    My "company" does not run a ladder.

    My Department runs two E-One Stratospear ladders, both 110 foot rear mounts. One is a 1993 ona PemFab chassis, the other is a 2001 on a Cyclone chassis.

    Nope. No ladder truck.

    We got ground ladders from 10ft up to 40ft if that counts?

    Good luck in your studies.
