A new fire truck has arrived at  the Fort Meade VA Medical Center, which is the only ladder truck between Spearfish and Rapid City.

The 77-foot truck has a pumping capacity of 1,500 gallons per minute and is 12 feet higher than the truck it replaced. It will save an estimated 40 minutes in response time that it would take for a unit to respond from another city, according to fire chief George Mandas.

The truck will be available to answer calls in the area.
