Long distance dedication … north of the Border

This from Josh Boyajian:

Drew and I were recently in Madison and we visited several firehouses and shot a lot of rigs. Every firehouse we were at had at least one guy from the Chicago land area that now works there. When we went to Engine 4’s house, the lieutenant on duty was a previous Naperville fireman. He expressed to us how he recognized our names from CAF, (and that he views the site daily). He was more than happy to talk to us and take us wherever we wanted to go to shoot the rig. We went back to the firehouse where he invited us to stay for dinner. After dinner, we made our way downstairs, he gave us their new house t-shirts, and in exchange asked for two favors. One was to mail him back the picture of his rig, along with a Stickney t-shirt, and the other was for me to send these pictures to post on chicagoareafire.com. If you can that would be great!

Along with the pictures, can you post this thank you  …

– Thank you LT. Komarck and the shift at Engine 4.

New tower ladder for Elk Grove Village

This from Scott Peterson:

This is the new tower ladder for Elk Grove Village. It is scheduled to go in-service the 2nd week of September. Tower 7 in Steve’s pictures from the Elk Grove Township extra alarm is actually the reserve truck. We had been running a 75’ straight stick quint ( a Pierce Quantum, Truck 7), 2000-gpm/500 gallons & 30 of foam. That is sold and being stripped this week to prepare for the changeover to the new Quint 7.

The new tower specs are:

100′ Pierce Velocity, 2000gpm/300 gallons (This was a stock Pierce tower)

Tower 7, the 100′ Dash 2000 will go back to reserve once this is placed in service.
