Barrington orders new engine

The Barrington Fire Department in MABAS Division 4 has ordered a new engine from E-ONE. The new unit, which will be very similar to Engine 361, will be built on a Typhoon chassis with a 1,250-GPM pump, a 1,260-gallon water tank, and two 20-gallon foam cells. (so 136838)

Cary FPD updated on the site

Cary Fire Protection District patchWhen the Cary Fire Protection District was added to the site HERE, there were several images missing. Larry Shapiro recently visited Cary and was able to photograph the rest of the apparatus as well as a few units which have been renumbered (Squad 255 and Tanker 270). Among the photos is a 1928 antique American LaFrance engine and a new Medtec ambulance that was delivered recently.
