Clarendon Hills is added to Division 10

Clarendon Hills Pierce Dash Squad

Clarendon Hills becomes the third department posted in Division 10. This single station department is staffed by 56 part-time & POC firefighters. They have a full-time chief and a full-time fire inspector. This is one of the few area departments left which uses the white over yellow paint scheme, and unlike the others Clarendon Hills uses silver instead of gold to decorate the apparatus. Many will remember their Mack heritage which has now given way completely to Pierce. They run an engine, squad, ladder truck and an ambulance.
