Buffalo Grove update

Ambulance 224, Buffalo Grove’s 2009 Ford Medtec has finally been added to the site. Buffalo Grove rotates the ambulances and each does not have a specific station assignment. They are lettered only with the shop numbers.

Buffalo Grove trains with new rigs

The Buffalo Grove Fire Department spent several days training on their new Ferrara Inferno tower ladder and Igniter pumper. The pumper will go into service shortly and the tower will take longer to mount all the equipment and get everyone trained and ‘certified’ to use it.
