Someone mentioned in the comments about a new TRT for Naperville. It has been delivered. The photos and specs are at the link below.  It is not in service as of yet.

City of Naperville (IL) Equipment Vehicle

We recently completed this specialty equipment vehicle for the City of Naperville in Illinois. The vehicle features a Freightliner M2 106 conventional cab chassis and a custom LDV-built aluminum body. We added an auto open/close rear liftgate as well. The body has integrated emergency and scene lighting. A three camera rear view system has also been added to aid parking maneuvers. We prewired the vehicle for communications radios as well. A custom center console was fabricated to house the installed electronics. Six roll up exterior storage compartments were added which feature heavy duty slide out tray shelving for gear. A vertical compartment features storage for customer installed shoring struts and tubing. Six pull out platforms were also added to access the upper storage shelves.

Chicago Fire Department (IL) Mobile Rehab Vehicle

This mobile rehabilitation vehicle was recently completed for the Chicago Fire Department and features a Freightliner MT-55G chassis, TQS 308HP V8 engine and an Allison 2200HS automatic transmission. The all aluminum body has several of our Extreme Duty body storage compartments for gear storage and a custom aluminum flip down step entry. We added a power retracting awning to the curbside for shade. A Rosco Vision 360° camera surround camera system has also been added. An Igloo 5 gallon water dispenser is secured to the rear of the vehicle with a truck mount bracket.

Inside, the vehicle features a sliding cab divider door. A single workstation has been added with a commercial grade cabinet. Dry erase writing surface is included on the cabinet door. Fixed bench seats are included on the driver and passenger sides. Overhead ceiling grab bars are also installed. Dual Klimaire mini split heat pump systems are installed along with ventilation fans. A direct discharge furnace handles the heating duties in the winter. An Onan Commercial Quiet gas generator supplies plenty of electric power to the vehicle. We also prewired the vehicle for communications radios.

New truck for Addison Fire District

Excerpts from the Addison Fire Protection District on Facebook:

We are excited to introduce our latest addition – a 107′ aerial from Pierce. Today, Widaman Sign completed the decals, and it looks fantastic. Next, the aerial will undergo upgrades for new radios and emergency lighting before it returns for final training and deployment.
Ladder 72 will be at station 72 in the industrial park and will play a vital role in our operational strategy for the next 10-15 years. Serving as our truck company, it will carry many items including heavy-duty extrication tools. Additionally, it will be ALS equipped and staffed with firefighter/paramedics.
 
We extend our gratitude to our Board of Trustees for making this purchase possible.
