Comox Fire Rescue to unveil new fire truck in Late-May

Comox Fire Rescue will be unveiling a new fire truck to the public later this month.

According to the Town of Comox, it is a new aerial ladder fire truck with a reach of 110 feet, and features a three-person platform bucket. In a rescue, it can lower people to the ground two or three at a time.

It can also pump 1,000 gallons of water per minute, and has a built-in idle system.

The truck is dedicated to John Marinus, a community member who volunteered in multiple projects, including the Rotary Club. He was a Comox councilor for five terms, and was part of Fire Rescue for 37 years.
