SATELLITE BEACH & BREVARD COUNTY PARTNERSHIP
One Team-One Mission
Satellite Beach Fire Rescue and Brevard County Fire Rescue have an auto-aid agreement, cohabitate in the same station and have a rare agreement in that they co-staff the same apparatus -- Tower 63.
The truck is referred to as a tower or aerial platform. It has a platform, or bucket, at the tip of the ladder, giving the firefighters a location to work from at any operational height. Max reach is 100 feet up. It has the ability to flow 1,250 gallons of water per minute (GPM) from a master stream nozzle located on the platform base and pump 1,500 GPM from an on-board pump. The aerial ladder assembly was ordered and constructed from aluminum, as opposed to standard painted steel, in order to resist corrosion and rust common in the beachside response area.
