Ladder 2-3-2 - 1982 Pierce Arrow 100’/2000 gpm

After 25 years of active service as the first due truck company, this rig is now held in reserve while the 100’ quint shown below responds as the primary truck company apparatus.

Ladder 2-3-12 - 2007 KME Predator 100’/2000 gpm/650 gal.

When the department began looking at a replacement for Ladder 2, it was decided to go with a quint which replaced both the ladder & an engine. With the option to run as an engine or truck, this rig provides the department with greater flexibility particularly when faced with limited manpower.

Huntington operates their entire fleet from this 10 bay firehouse.
