PHOTOS: New Aerial Platform extends Regina fire rescue abilities

Whether it’s a high or low spot, Regina Fire & Protective Services has a new tool that will make rescuing somebody in danger easier.

The department showcased its $1.37 million Aerial Platform on one of its fire trucks Friday morning. The contraption can be described as an arm, resembling an extending ladder, with a bucket on the end.

Deputy Fire Chief Gerard Kay said the arm can reach seven feet longer than previous versions. The total reach is 102 feet which could come in handy for rescues from tall buildings.
