New engine for Naperville

From the Fire Service, Inc. Facebook page:

A special thanks to Fire Chief Puknaitis, Deputy Chief Scheller, Fleet Services Project Manager Tracy Rulo, & the Naperville FD apparatus committee on their purchase of a 2021 E-One e-Max squad. This unit was highly customized and built to handle Naperville’s large footprint. With over 38 square miles and a population of over 148,000, this unit will surely get a workout. We appreciate the continued business from this excellent customer.

New E-ONE Typhoon e-MAX pumper for Naperville FD Squad 9

Thanks Danny and Daniel
