Today I saw TV footage that showed a 100' ladder fully extended. It looked as though there was some sort of illuminated green rod that went up the entire length of the ladder. This was a fairly new Pierce truck so I'm wondering if anyone has this or can tell me more about it.
late model Pierce ladders have this optional feature - LED lighting up the bottom inside corner of both ladder rail section in red, blue, green or white. There are also glow-in-the-dark rung covers. Our 2009 100' tower ladder has both the LED lighting and rung covers - it's pretty striking to see at night.
Not our truck, but a great shot of the feature here:
