Fire Truck Rollback Ceremony

On Wednesday, July 6 Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue held the official Rollback Ceremony for its new truck serving the western communities. The ceremony is a 150-year firefighter tradition to bless and dedicate a new truck by manually rolling it into its station. This vehicle is the tallest and heaviest in the fleet. Its ladder can extend 10 stories high, swing 360 degrees and hose 2,000 gallons a minute. Housed at Station 29 on Belvedere Road in Royal Palm Beach, it will serve Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, The Acreage, Loxahatchee Groves and Westlake, as well as travel wherever it is needed.
