Loudoun County, Virginia (Stations 1 - 12) - Mike Sanders

Ashburn's first ladder truck was "Quint 6", a 2001 Spartan Gladiator/2002 Smeal 75' rearmount equipped with a 1500/400. An interesting conversion of this truck occurred in 2008 when the department sold their Rescue Engine. Needing a fire truck that could handle extrications, the decision was made to remove the pump and tank from Quint 6 and add a large compartment to carry extrication equipment. Ferrara completed this work in 2008.

What was once Quint 6 is now Truck 606. The ladder truck is a back up aerial for the department and handles extrication calls.
