Prospect Heights 1996 Pierce Lance squad for sale

This from Drew Smith:

Our 1996 rescue pumper, the former Squad 9 (also known as “Squadzilla”) has been sold to the Jay VFD in Vermont  who took possession Monday (2/24/15). JVFD Assistant Chief Jeff Morse and Captain Brent Grenier are driving the vehicle to its  new home. Jay, VT is located at the Canadian border to the U.S. about 1,000 miles from Prospect Heights.

JVFD is no stranger to long drives with used apparatus. A/C Morse stated that a few years ago they purchased a used 175-foot triple-axle Bronto from South Padre Island, TX and drove it back to Jay.

This from Erik Hajkowicz:

These are from the Pierce Flickr page. New engines for Orland Park FPD. Station 4 has been running a Pierce quint for several years. It’s interesting they’re are getting an engine again. Hopefully someone has more info on the new assignments.

Erik.
