Alsip Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

These photos are from the late 1980 or early 1990s of the Alsip Fire Department.  I do not know the specifics, but I wanted to share.  Do departments today have the resources to have specialized equipment, like these?
Thank you,
Mike Summa

This from Niko Stefani:

Here are some photos I took of Highland Park Fire Department’s new squad. It was placed in service last night (1-5-16). A while back the squad used to be at Station 33. The department did some rotating with the apparatus. The truck was placed at station 34 while the engine and squad would be out of Station 33. That didn’t last very long so they moved the squad to Station 34. Ever since it has been Squad 34 using a 2000 Pierce Saber. The Pierce is now the new reserve company for Highland Park. Engine 33 (used to be 34) is now going back as Engine Co. 34 at Station 34 and the new squad will be out of Station 33 along with the truck in the center of town. I was told today that the truck is usually staffed around this time of year. When it’s not, the engine crew or now squad crew would jump over to the truck for mutual aid calls. The 2006 Pierce Enforcer is once again at Station 34 while the new Spartan squad is out of Station 33. Battalion 33 is also being replaced with a new Ford Expedition.
