The Unified Fire Authority showed off its latest apparatus to city officials during a city council meeting on Sept. 12.

The Rosenbauer tractor-drawn-aerial unit is a tower truck with a water nozzle that reaches 100 feet high, with a spray reach of 94 feet. It is also equipped with a 300-gallon water tank. It has a rear steering wheel, making it very maneuverable on tight corners.

The tower can handle a 500-pound payload for high rescues.

The truck is the first of five units purchased by Unified Fire, and went into service on Sept. 1.
