CCCFPD Welcomes 1st of 3 New Tiller Trucks
On Friday, the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District welcomed the first of three new Pierce tractor drawn aerial ladder trucks. The first 100' mid mount tiller was placed into service as Truck 1 in Downtown Walnut Creek at Fire Station 1 on Civic Drive. These trucks are the first of their kind in the fire district and are a welcome upgrade to their fleet. Each truck has a full complement of auto extrication, rope rescue, and a variety of other rescue equipment, including advanced life support medical equipment for use by their paramedics and EMT's. These trucks have identical body colors as the newer fire engines that have been slowly rolling out into the communities throughout their jurisdiction.
