MABAS 7 Swap Meet

This from Steve Redick:

I finally got a chance to take this in. It was very nice, much bigger than I expected. Rig shots were very hard to come by but got some cool stuff. The engine lettered for Rockdale does not belong to them from what I understand. I was happy to finally get to see the Peotone Snorkel.

New tower ladder for Bedford Park

This from Josh Boyajian:

Had the opportunity to shoot both of Bedford Park’s tower ladders on Friday. The new one is a 2015 Pierce Dash CF PUC 100′ RM with an aluminum ladder, a 2000-GPM pump, and a 280-gallon water tank. Here is a shot with both of them together before the old one goes off to Canada.

Brush fire in Streamwood, 4-4-15

This from Nick Nerizi:

On 4-4-15, Streamwood companies responded to a brush fire in the wooded area south of Deerfield Dr. The fire was quickly knocked, and cleared within a few hours. A general callback was started however, resulting in duplicate companies on-scene including both ambulance 32, and reserve ambulance 32.
