Oneonta Gets A New Fire Truck
State Senator James Seward and Assemblyman Bill Magee joined City of Oneonta officials Friday to unveil the city’s new fire truck. Senator Seward and Assemblyman Magee each secured $250,000 in state funding to assist in the purchase of the new $1.1 million ladder truck. The new 2015 ladder truck includes a 100 foot heavy-duty ladder tower, a 2,000 gallon per minute water pump, and a fully enclosed six-person cab. The truck was purchased from Ferrara Fire Apparatus near Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is replacing a 1992 model. The city fire department serves the City of Oneonta, the Town of Oneonta’s Oneonta Fire District, and provides mutual aid to a number of area volunteer departments.
