Ladder 2 is the second-out piece for structure fires within Southampton and responds to many neighboring towns as part of mutual aid agreements. It is a 2014 Rosenbauer Viper 78’ Aerial with a Cummins ISX15 500 HP Diesel Engine and a 15kw PTO Onan generator.
Ladder 2 features seating capabilities for 7 firefighters and is equipped with a full complement of ground ladders, power saws, hand tools, and a thermal imaging camera.
In addition to serving as a ladder company, the truck also has the capability to serve as an engine if needed, carrying 600′ of 5″ supply hose and a complement of attack hoses for fire suppression. Ladder 2’s aerial device also has a prepiped waterway to flow water for larger fires.
Southampton Fire Company is looking for old photographs of its fire trucks, building or members before the date of 1950. If you have any please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We wish to only copy them, and you may retain ownership.
