7-TOWER is a 1998 Sutphen aerial platform apparatus. 7-TOWER responds to all structure fires and was designed to carry all of the ladders, tools and other equipment necessary for ladder company operations and be able to perform engine company operations if necessary. 7-TOWER has a 95 foot telescopic ladder with a “bucket” which can carry 3 fully equipped firefighters to a height of approximately 100 feet (or to the roof of a 7 story building). The “bucket” has two master stream nozzles, each capable of flowing 750 gallons of water per minute. The “bucket” also contains a breathing air system, floodlights and a variety of firefighting equipment that might be needed while rescuing persons or extinguishing fires. 7-TOWER is capable of pumping 2000 gallons of water per minute and carries 300 gallons of water in its tank. It is powered by a V-8 diesel engine and has an automatic transmission.
