New Tower Ladder

RVFD recently placed in service a 2019 Seagrave Marauder Aerialscope. The 95 foot aerial platform, costing $1.6 million, was purchased by RVFD using donations and grant funds. The unit was placed in service during a ceremony in September at which the aerial tower was dedicated in memory of RVFD Capt. Sander Cohen, who was killed in the line of duty in December 2017 while assisting a motorist on I-270 in Rockville.

After final updates and training, the new tower ladder is expected to respond to about 3,000 emergency incidents each year.
