This from Drew Smith:
Our 1996 rescue pumper, the former Squad 9 (also known as “Squadzilla”) has been sold to the Jay VFD in Vermont who took possession Monday (2/24/15). JVFD Assistant Chief Jeff Morse and Captain Brent Grenier are driving the vehicle to its new home. Jay, VT is located at the Canadian border to the U.S. about 1,000 miles from Prospect Heights.
JVFD is no stranger to long drives with used apparatus. A/C Morse stated that a few years ago they purchased a used 175-foot triple-axle Bronto from South Padre Island, TX and drove it back to Jay.

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.
And from Al:
These look sharp…

Here are a few ‘quickie’ pictures of our brand-new E-One Typhoon 1500-GPM pumper. It should be in-service at Station 1 within the next 2 weeks after all firefighters receive training. It’s our first E-One- can’t wait to try it out!
