Area departments purchasing new ambulances

We have more information about new ambulance orders:

One of our readers tells us that:

  • Downers Grove just ordered a 2012 Freightliner/Medtec to replace the 2006 Ford/Medtec at station #2


  • Arlington Heights has ordered (2) new Type I Medtec ambulances on IHC 4300 chassis similar to their squads. Previously, all of their ambulances were Type III styles on E-Series chassis from Ford.

X-Nunda engine now with Hebron-Alden-Greenwood

Thanks to Scott Peterson for the tip on this one.

The Hebron-Alden-Greenwood FPD purchased Engine 1346 from the Nunda Rural FPD sometime last year. The vehicle is now painted Red.

Bill Friedrich adds:

This vehicle, which currently has a Spartan Monarch cab, was originally delivered with a Ford C-8000 cab that was destroyed in an accident in 1994. I believe RPI did the work on this rehab. A photo of the new engine at Hebron will be added when photographed.
