Ladder B A 1973 Mack CF equipped with a 75’ Baker Aerialscope. Tower Ladder B Served Lancaster City between 1973 and 1990, before being sold by Northeast Fire Apparatus in Lancaster PA. It was then sold to Smithfield VFD in Virginia where it operated for roughly 10 years. Following Smithfield, the Tower served in Carrsville Virginia, and Gatesville North Carolina until 2018. After roughly 27 years, Ladder B has returned to Lancaster County, PA. A few of Lancaster City’s own firefighters are working to return, restore, and revitalize a priceless piece of firefighting culture, history, and tradition.
