Tower 1 is a 95′ E-One platform aerial truck. As the only aerial truck in the department and neighboring communities, Tower 1 is equipped with a 300 gallon water tank, and a piped waterway ready to supply high volumes of water to large fires. The platform at the tip of the truck enables multiple firefighters to have quick access to rooftops or upper floors of buildings for ventilation or rescue needs.
When accessible, Tower 1 is equipped with a “snuffer” hose that enables a rapid response to chimney fires while reducing possible damage to the structure. Tower 1 is the Manchester Fire Department’s second due apparatus to all structure fires. Careful consideration must be taken to ensure the ladder has access to a building before other vehicles block the way.
