Hampshire FPD donates engine to ECC

This from Bill Friedrich:

The Hampshire Fire Protection District recently donated a fire engine to Elgin Community College (ECC) in honor of retired Chief Wayne Siegmann, an advocate for professional development. The engine will provide a hands-on laboratory environment for ECC students in the fire science program.

The used truck will be incorporated in the fire science curriculum to train students on how to drive and pump the fire engine.

The engine is a 1986 Mack MC688/3D 1000/1250.

and from David:

Just came across this photo of a new Oshkosh Striker 8×8 equipped with Snozzle delivered recently to O’Hare. I’m not sure, but it seems like this news may be already a few weeks old. I think this is the first 4-axle ARFF unit to serve with the CFD.

Lightning strike in Glenview, 8-25-14

Images from Larry Shapiro of companies working at 4177 Midway Lane in Glenview (8/25) after lightning struck a house during one of several rounds of violent storms that passed through the area. Heavy smoke on arrival prompted an upgrade to a working fire response which brought Morton Grove, Niles, Northfield, and Wilmette units to supplement all of the Glenview companies.

Morton Grove Quint 4 was on the road when the call came in, so instead of going back to quarters and jumping to Squad 4 (which was due) they were told to go right to the scene. Ambulance 4 also came to bring the crew strength to five.
