Question 1: Ladder Truck Referendum
By Fire Chief B. Michael Thurlow

Your ballot contains referendum Question 1 asking Scarborough voters if they are in favor of authorizing up to $1,200,000 in bonds to fund the cost of a replacing one of our ladder trucks. It is my duty to provide as much accurate information as possible so that the electorate can make an informed decision when they cast their ballot.
There are three primary reasons that drive the replacement of fire apparatus:

1) Current truck condition, notably the age, shape and reliability of the truck. 

2) Cost of maintenance which generally increases with age, usage, and availability of replacement parts. 

3) Safety of the public and our personnel.
Read Fire Chief Thurlow's full article above. If you have questions or would like to personally see our apparatus, please don’t hesitate to email Fire Chief Thurlow or call (207) 730-4201.
