C.V. Hose Accepts Delivery Of 1998 E-One Ladder Truck

On March 29, 1998 the Cumberland Valley Hose Company’s 1998 E-One 95 foot ladder tower arrived in Shippensburg. President Bruce Hockersmith estimated the final cost of the rig to be $642,000. The truck is equipped with a 1,500-g.p.m. pump and supplied air to the bucket. It replaces the former CF Mack FDNY Tower Ladder, and becomes the third truck in company history. The truck was in town briefly before being taken to have equipment mounted and be shown at Fire Expo.
