Skokie Fire Department news

From Skokie Fire Department Firefighter’s Local 3033 Facebook:

We are officially saying goodbye to our 1993 Luverne Squad/Pumper. This rig has valiantly served us for many years “Squad 18” and as our reserve squad apparatus for when our frontline goes in for routine maintenance. A big thank you from all of us for being so reliable for so many years.

The EFD has taken delivery of our “new” 2006 Pierce reserve ladder truck. We are in the process of having it lettered and training with it. It will enter our reserve pool of apparatus in a few weeks. This truck will be used when one of our front line tiller trucks goes out of service for maintenance.
