Factory photo of Knightdale’s new and sharp-looking ladder. 2021 Pierce Enforcer Ascendant, 1500/500/107-foot. Third for the town, following a 1973 Ford/Pierce Telesqurt acquired in 2002, and a 1997 Pierce Quantum rear-mount added in 2009. Photo source.
 Two other aerials served the Knightdale Volunteer FD, back in its day, a 1991 E-One rear-mount 75-foot quint, and a 1975 Mack/Maxim/Hamerly mid-mount added in 1999. The Knightdale Volunteer FD became Eastern Wake FD in 2003, which merged with the town in 2020. Read those histories.
