TFD operate around 80 aerial ladder towers, with one at each full time station.

The 40 meter versions are on tandem axle chassis like this, including some with rear steering axles, while the 30 meter ones have a single rear axle. These include several now quite elderly Iveco-Magirus units - just about the only imported fire trucks in Japan, except for Unimogs which are quite popular...

TFD also has a number of squirts - essentially pumpers with a boom around 15 to 20 meters long, equipped with a nozzle.
