        Holy Bawls... I'm so glad that our department covers an area where two story houses are the highest we need to go...

          I don't think I would want to climb our aerial because it is really old. I probably will when we get the new one.

                How old is that aerial ladder?

                I, in my younger days, have climbed aerial's made in the 1930's. No problem with them.

                  1976. Our department is in the process of buying a new aerial. But the big reason I don't want to climb it is that the whole truck is having mechanical issues. I don't want something to fail if I decide I want to climb it.

                    If that rig, aerial device, is having mechanical problems and it may affect the safe operation of it, then it shouldn't be used.

                    If there isn't anything wrong with the truck, it can be used as a personnel carrier, but the aerial shouldn't be used, if it's bad or having serious problems.

                      We hardly ever use the aerial on this truck due to its age. Only certain people are allowed to even climb it (the smaller guys). But it is rare that we even use the thing. This is the next truck we are replacing, but we are still in the process of getting bids.
