New truck for Roberts Park FPD (more)

This from the Roberts Park FPD website:

The Roberts Park Fire Protection District is proud to announce the acceptance of a new tower ladder. The Crimson brand ladder is capable of reaching 93 feet into the air. This truck, manufactured in 2014, was formerly owned by the Alexandria, Virginia Fire Department. After some minor refurbishment it has a new home, right here in Justice. In our continued effort to exercise fiscal responsibility, we saved approximately half the cost of ordering a brand new truck. This vehicle comes to us fully inspected and certified and carries a warranty as well. We expect to place Tower 305 in service in mid-July, after all of our operators have been fully trained.

For #TBT, here are some shots of vintage Morton Grove fire apparatus as I was going up on the north shore. I was unable to get my hands on the specs when I submitted these.
