This from Asher Heimermann:

From the Salvation Army website:

The Salvation Army is usually the first organization on the scene, and often the last to leave. Disaster relief and recovery services are provided to all in need without discrimination.

New ambulance for Alsip

From the Fire Service, Inc. Facebook page:

Congratulations to Chief Tom Styczynski, Deputy Chief Bob Ricker, and the Village of Alsip Board of Trustees on the recent purchase of their new Type III Road Rescue UltraMedic ambulance. This new custom unit is being built on a 2022 Ford E-450, 158” wheelbase chassis, with a 7.3L gasoline engine. This new unit will be the next addition in their all Road Rescue fleet of custom ambulances. It will come complete with Road Rescue’s V-MUX Multiplex electrical system, all aluminum interior, Federal Signal LED emergency lighting, Per4Max Restraint Systems, Stryker Power Load & Power Cot, and custom SCBA/gear compartment. This vehicle will provide the “Mission Ready” consistency and dependability that the Alsip FD demands. Alsip has been a loyal Fire Service Inc. and Road Rescue customer for many years. We appreciate this, and have worked hand in hand to truly help keep them “In Service for Life”
