Interesting stuff.  My question is, why does Somervell County need a ladder truck?  I've always wondered why a city thats tallest building is 3 stories tall needs something like this.

As a member of the dept, I can say that the ladder truck was here before I was.  When I asked the same thing (before my training kicked in) I was told it was required in order to build the Best Western hotel.  After training, I've learned that you don't necessarily need the 110' ladder to reach 110' up, but out.  When deploying the ladder, you must stay at a safe distance (out of the collapse zone).  If you consider that the highest hotel has 3 stories, you have to be able to stay 3 stories in width back from the hotel and still be able to reach the roof to rescue patients or vertically ventilate the roof.  Hope that answers your question.

Have to say that I love the Community Nights where all the fire and sheriff's department come show off.

I agree... I love to see all of the "neat toys" that the fire department has, I've just always wondered :)
