This from Mark J. Gaunky, Deputy Fire Marshal, Mundelein Fire Department:

  • Just wanted to give you guys a heads up we are in the process of purchasing the old Sugar Grove tower ladder. It is currently in Harrisburg PA, where they are giving it the once over and making some minor repairs, new tires, etc. It will be delivered via semi-truck sometime this month. This will replace our 1995 Pierce ladder, which was slated for replacement next year.
  • We have ordered a new KME pumper, which should be delivered sometime this summer. I will forward the final drawing when we get it. This replaces our 1992 Pierce, which has already been sold to a broker.
  • Lastly, we will be ordering a new replacement ambulance by then end of summer.
