Lexington County Fire Service’s ladder truck saves “high” workers stranded on the job

July 23, 2018

 

Little Mountain, SC (Paul Kirby) Ladder 11, a “straight stick” aerial truck out of Lexington County’s Chapin fire station,helped rescue a few high workers in Newberry County last week. Normally, workers being high on the job would be a problem, but in the case of these two who do maintenance on large water tanks, being high off the ground is all in a day’s work. 

 

Newberry County requested the ladder’s assistance on Boundary Street in Little Mountain after a portion of the device the workers were using to access an elevated water tank failed. It left them stranded high above the ground with no way to get down. Although there are truck mounted ladders in Newberry County, the closest was in the City of Newberry some distance away. Lexington County’s Ladder 11 was obviously the fastest and best option. Once arriving on scene, the crew from Chapin was able to quickly put the ladder into service and a firefighter was able to guide the stranded workers to safety.
