From the Morris FPD Facebook page:

Firefighters create a bond between themselves and their¬†equipment. Without our equipment we could not perform our duties. We care for our fire apparatus better than we care for our own cars at times. So today is a bittersweet day for us at the Fire District. We mark the last shift our citizens and firefighters will be protected by a remarkable piece of fire apparatus. Tower Ladder 2319 will finish it service with us and begin a new life with another Fire District. This apparatus replaced our aging 1975 American La France aerial in 1997. We have included a few action shoots along with a picture next to it’s replacement.
