In 1960, the fire company purchased the first motorized aerial device for the community at a cost of $50, 000.00. The new "aerial-pumper" was delivered on May 6th during the New Castle County Fire Chiefs meeting. The unit featured a 750 gpm pump and 300 gallon booster tank, 227' of ground ladders, 1,000' of 2 1/2" hose, 100' of 3" hose, and 600' of 1 1/2" hose. The unit served the community until 1977 when it was replaced by the Seagrave ladder. The unit was sold to the Rock Hall Fire Company who continued to operate the unit for several years. The truck is now owned by a private collector in upstate New Jersey.
