Friday, August 30, 2013 The Highlands Fire Department is proud to take delivery of the NEW 17-90. We commend all of those who worked so hard on this project. The last time HFD took delivery of new apparatus was 18 years ago with the addition of 17-77 and the last time we took delivery of a ladder truck was 35 years ago! We are extremely excited to put her into service. The next step will be training to get all personnel up to speed with the new technology that is incorporated into this piece of apparatus.
