Unified Fire Authority firefighters check out a new Rosenbauer tractor-drawn aerial firetruck at Station No. 106 in Millcreek on Thursday. The truck, the latest addition the fire agency's fleet, is more than 60 feet long and requires a second driver to control the steerable rear axle. Despite its length, the truck is considerably more maneuverable than standard firetrucks, thanks to the second steering wheel, firefighters say. The truck also features a remote-controlled, 100-foot extension ladder mounted on a turntable that provides quick access to multistory buildings and the ability to introduce water to a fire from above.
