Mayor Neil Bradshaw, center, celebrates the unveiling of Truck 1 with Ketchum Assistant Fire Chief Tom Ancona, left, and then interim Chief Tom Bowman, right, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday. The new aerial-tower truck—purchased from Hughes Fire Equipment for $959,069—comes as a replacement for the city’s 1987 ladder truck, which recently became inoperable. “Safety is our top priority,” Bradshaw said in a press release. “It’s essential for the city to have the best equipment for our firefighters.” Bradshaw said in an interview that he appointed Ancona as interim chief following Bowman’s retirement Monday.
