New engine for West Allis, WI

This from Crabby Milton:

Good Afternoon.
I found out recently while visiting West Allis Station 1, that Station 2 just got a 2016 SEAGRAVE pumper. They were a steady PIERCE customer for many years but also have a 1990 SEAGRAVE ladder.
This was part of an annual event called Doors Open Milwaukee, where several iconic buildings are open to the public which included some fire stations.
Thank You,
Crabby Milton
