Of interest … Toronto Fire Department

This from Bill Post:

Here is a 6 minute video that was done about a month ago. Even though it isn’t about a Chicago area fire department I think it is significant as the official unveiling of the the tallest aerial platform in North America by the Toronto Fire Department.
It is a 229-foot Bronto Skylift built on a Mack chassis and will be used a  cross-staffed apparatus when needed for high-rise fires or high-angle rescues. It was delivered during the winter but was officially introduced to the public last month. It is at Toronto Station 333 in downtown Toronto.
