On the evening of Saturday, August 15th, 2020 Merrick Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 held a small in-house ceremony to put the new Ladder 6412 into service. The rig, a 2020 Seagrave 100’ aerial ladder, replaces the company’s 1991 Saulsbury Heavy Rescue and will soon be joined by a new Seagrave tower ladder . Monsignor Caldwell and Reverend Callahan [both from Cure of Ars in Merrick] blessed the rig while Merrick Honorary Chief Arthur Keil christened the rig. The best of luck to the company with their new apparatus.
