The new American-LaFrance $15,500 motor driven aerial ladder truck recently purchased by Brideport, Conn., was given its official test recently and performed its work without a hitch. The apparatus will be placed at No. 2 Truck Company quarters on Middle Street. It was accepted by the board of fire commissioners following the test. The truck is equipped with a 75-foot aerial ladder, one 45-foot extension, two 35-ft. extensions, one 20, one 16, and one 12-ft. roof ladder, one 32 and one 20-ft. straight ladder.
