Water Witch Hose Company #2 firefighters in New Milford spent the morning yesterday completing a Ladder Tactics and Operations class in preparation for the delivery of their new Pierce Tower Ladder.  The $1.3 million vehicle was acquired through a FEMA grant and contribution from the taxpayers of New Milford.  Brookfield and Kent Fire Departments shared their trucks as part of the training.  Later this week, members of the Water Witch design committee will be traveling out to the Pierce plant in Wisconsin to go over some final details and inspect the truck before it gets delivered to a dealer in New York to have tools and equipment mounted.
