FDNY Ladder 10 -- 2004 Seagrave Aerial

This 100 ft Seagrave Rear-Mounted 4 section aerial is stationed in America's most famous firehouse -- FDNY Fire Station 10. The station is located just 50 meters from what had been the south tower of the World Trade Center.

When the south tower collapsed, firefighters, police officers and paramedics sought refuge in Station 10, which was heavily damaged but remained intact. The station which houses both Engine 10 and Ladder 10 was rebuilt by the FDNY in 2003. It is now the most visited tourist attraction at the World Trade Center disaster site.

Seagrave, longtime manufacturer of FDNY appliances, delivered this rig with a very special paint scheme -- a hand painted patriotic montage. These days Seagrave builds every pump and aerial device for both the FDNY and the Los Angeles City Fire Department. Those contacts alone keep the company in business.

Actually, the current Ladder 10 was manufactured in late 2001 and put into service in early 2002.

This truck was in the bronx a few months ago it was on the grand concourse I have no idea why

The apparatus being so far from its home(firehouse)in lower Manhattan may well
have been traveling to workshops/training centre on Randell's Island.May have
been having service done, but if seen with a crew then posibly training.
Personnel from all stations return to the Fire Academy(known as The Rock)on
a regular basis for ongoing training throughout their service with the FDNY.

The newest trucks are not from Seagrave but from Ferrara.
