Ladder Companies

Detroit Ladder Truck

Detroit Ladder companies, also known  as truck companies, gain access to the structure on fire, ventilate the structure by opening windows, doors, and chopping holes in the roof. They also disconnect utilities and place ground ladders to provide an escape route for trapped civilians or firefighters. Below are the makes/models of all our ladder trucks.
