Truck 209, the refurbished 2006 Pierce ladder truck that was the former yellow Truck 204, arrived at the MTFR Southern Manheim Township Fire Station on Monday 7/9/18. The refurbishment included the obvious change to the blue and white colors of the other MTFR fire apparatus, a complete overhaul of the aerial ladder, and an update to the drive train with a new remanufactured motor. Truck 209 will be a ready reserve unit. Stationed at the Southern Manheim Fire Station, Truck 209 will be equipped and kept ready for use by the station staff. Although it is not the primary ladder truck in Manheim Township, it will be used to help train new drivers, replace Truck 204 when it needs repairs or it can be placed in service to respond to large incidents using extra firefighters.
