Extension ladder made of wood (painted red) and metal connectors.
Notes
Wooden extension ladders were standard equipment in the early days of firefighting. Modern fire truck extension ladders are usually built of aluminum which were introduced about 50 years ago. Wooden extension ladders are still used - Los Angeles, California, and the San Francisco Fire Department still use wooden extension ladders on all fire trucks.
