Bridgeview Fire Department news … New Home For Montgomery Engine

This from Keith Grzadziel:

“The Bridgeview Fire Department recently purchased this very lightly used engine from the Montgomery and Countryside Fire Protection District. It is a 1989 Federal Cyclone E-One with a Detroit Diesel 8v92 and has a 150-GPM Hale pump and 750-gallon tank. In about a month or so, after getting re-lettered, renumbered and outfitted, it should be up and running as a dependable reserve engine for our department. This will replace our worn out 1993 Pierce reserve.”; #BridgeviewFD; #Federalfireengine; #E-ONE; #Cyclone; #FireTruck; #MontgomeryandCountrysideFPD;
