Niceville Fire Department’s tower truck will be out of commission for month with a maintenance issue – according to Chief Tommy Mayville. The truck will be sent to Cottondale, Alabama for the repairs.

“A ladder fire truck, according to a manufacturer of fire trucks, is a basic tool for rapid response, ventilation, extinguishment and rescue operations in the fire service. An aerial ladder truck stands out in a fleet because of the highly visible ladder device on the top of the truck with either a mid-mount or rear-mount application.”

According to Chief Mayville, the truck’s mission control elements caused the engine to malfunction.

While repairs are made, Chief Mayville says Niceville Fire Department will rely on neighboring departments, with which they have mutual aid agreements, to help them out in a pinch. Niceville FD has mutual aid agreements with Ocean City FD, North Bay Fire Department and Eglin Air Force Base FD.
