Alco-Lite™ can deliver your Fire Ladder
faster than anyone else!
Hi! My name is Skip, and I am the new mascot for Alco-Lite fire ladders. While I may be new to Alco-Lite, myself and my fellow dalmatians have been a part of the fire service for as long as there was a fire service.
Originally, we were bred as stable guards and carriage dogs because we helped to calm the horses. It was this unique talent that brought us into the fire service back when wagons were pulled by teams of horses. We can credit the FDNY for giving us our foothold in the fire service. They began using dalmatians in the 1870s. Not only could we help to keep the team calm under stress we would run alongside the carriage to prevent anything disturbing the truck as it rolled into the fire.
While fire trucks are no longer pulled by horses, dalmatians are often used in fire safety education. In my role with Alco-Lite you can count on me to give you advice on the best practices from the fire field. Not only am I handsome, I have a long understanding of the challenges that face my front-line folks and aspire every day to keep you and your brethren safe on the fire line. Have any questions? Feel free to click me and ask – I will be happy to help you get the answers you need.
