New tower ladder for Bedford Park

This from Josh Boyajian:

Had the opportunity to shoot both of Bedford Park’s tower ladders on Friday. The new one is a 2015 Pierce Dash CF PUC 100′ RM with an aluminum ladder, a 2000-GPM pump, and a 280-gallon water tank. Here is a shot with both of them together before the old one goes off to Canada.
