New engines for the Orland FPD

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.

Also I recently found out Waubonsee Community College has an engine and an ambulance.  I will work on getting those photos as well.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 12-10-14 (history)

This from Bill Friedrich:

Prior to Engine 104’s station being closed these were the last suppression companies to run out of there 24×7. Michigan Avenue was not a very busy street on the weekends. After closing the station, Engine 104 was assigned to Engine 1’s house and 4-2-4 was assigned to Engine 26’s house.   A very sad day for this old fire station.
