The Officers and Members of the Walden Fire Dept. eagerly await the arrival of the new Ladder Truck (T-240) this week. The unit was commissioned to be built by Spartan by the commissioners of the Walden Fire District well over a year ago.

The new Ladder Truck is scheduled to be delivered on Friday (7/14/17) and the training will beginning that same weekend. After a few weeks of training and adjustments the New Ladder Truck should be placed in service.

The Truck will be replacing the current Ladder truck which went into service in 1997. The NFPA recommends that Fire Fighting apparatus be "changed out" every 20 years. This will help ensure that the Department has the proper apparatus in service to meet the needs of properly protecting the District.

On 6/26/17 the Walden Fire Department participated in a joint agency Active shooter drill with local Police Departments and EMS. This was the first hands on drill where the multiple disciplines worked together and formed "Rescue Task Force" consisting of Fire EMS and Police, to make entry into the area to treat and remove wounded civilians.

It was a great drill and all Agencies worked hand in hand to better protect and serve our public. This being the first time a joint exercise like this was conducted the results obviously exceeded everyone's expectations! In fact it was like all the agencies have been "drilling" together for years. It's truly an example of the Professionals that are here to serve the community.

Great job to all and it is our honor to serve all of you! Let's hope we never have to utilize these "skills" in a real world evolution!
