Recent Medtec ambulance deliveries

For those interested in ambulances, Medtec has delivered several area units in 2010. One mentioned in an earlier post and photographed by Karl Klotz went to the Troy FPD, which can be seen HERE. Others include LaGrange Park, Elmwood Park, and a pair of units to South Holland.

Another post will be forthcoming which highlights the dozen or so 2009 deliveries, several of which have been photographed and posted already on this site.

New Ferrara units arrive in Buffalo Grove

The Buffalo Grove Fire Department received their new engine and tower ladder directly from the FDIC in Indianapolis. The Ferrara units were originally stock trucks that Buffalo Grove was able to purchase before they were built. The engine was built to the same specifications as Buffalo Grove’s 2007 KME Predator engine (218) so that the bodies match identically (or very close). Buffalo Grove does not letter their apparatus with company designations, they only have the fleet unit number as part of the graphics.
