Name The Truck


Payson Fire Department personnel tested the hose on Payson's new 1990 Grumman Aerial-Cat ladder platform truck Friday at Green Valley Park.

The U.S. flag flew atop the 102-foot extended ladder during the safety fair at Wal-Mart Saturday.

Now that the rescue vehicle is in full operation, Fire Chief Marty deMasi is looking for a name for the new truck.

All elementary school-aged children are invited to submit names for consideration. The selected name will be painted on the side of the ladder truck and the winning student will get to ride in the vehicle during the town's electric light parade Saturday, Dec. 6.

Entry forms will be available at all Payson elementary schools, or children can submit their entry to the Main Street fire station.

Submitted names must be 15 characters or less and be received by Nov. 15.
