I had a great opportunity recently and was able to shoot the new Squad 7 @ O’Hare …
Squad 7 is a 2016 Rosenbauer Commander 4000, 18′ walk-in rescue squad company
Shop #AVF657
Squad 7A is a 2016 Rosenbauer Commander 4000, ACP-55 Articulating Cobra Platform

They are very nice! They seem like they are heavy duty and built well. Hopefully the fella’s have good luck with them.

Blue Island Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This is Blue Island’s engine 2133, a 1960 ALF 1500/500.  In 1984, it was involved in a traffic accident.  It was sent to ALF to have a Century cab installed.  It remained in service until 2007, when it was replaced by a 2007 HME.  An amazing 47 years in service.  Enjoy!
–Mike Summa

As seen around …. Concord, NC

This from Jeff Harkey:

Hey guys,

Thought you might want to run these pics of this Smeal/LTI/Spartan 55’ Snorkel demo.  The unit appeared this week at the North Carolina Fire Chief’s Association Mid-Winter Conference in Concord, NC.

According to the Smeal dealer, this is the fourth unit produced so far, and carries #nn0004. The Frankfort unit was the first, and two additional rigs have been produced.

The dealer also mentioned that the Memphis, TN Fire Department will be receiving a future 55’ unit.

Sorry, but no info on what departments received units 002 or 003.

Take care,

Jeff
