SF’s Wooden Ladders

Firemen in San Francisco have a unique problem: low old-style power lines are a dangerous issue when swinging around metal ladders, and light fiberglass ladders aren’t sturdy enough to stand up to fire department service.  So, the San Francisco fire department has its own wooden ladder-making shop which supplies San Fran’s Finest with the means to climb as high as they need without adding further risk to the firefighters’ lives.
