Chicago Fire Department history

This from Steve Redick:

This is from the Department General Order Dated May 31, 1965. It shows the organization of Snorkel Squad 3 and the controversial disbandment of Squad 7, Squad 1, and the relocation of Engine 66. Some great stuff here. Thanks to Jack Connors for sharing this.
