Alsip Fire Department history

From Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT-Alsip Fire Department in the mid 1960’s.  The left apparatus, Eng. 1 is a 1947 Chevy/Central 500/300.  The middle became Eng. 2033. a 1964 ALF 900 1000/750. The right apparatus I do not know anything about it, except it is a mid 1950’s Ford.  The first photo I got from the Alsip FD facebook page, so thank you.  The color photos are from the 1990’s.  Enjoy, and feel free to comment.

Alsip Fire Department news

This from Mike Summa:

In a recent edition of the Daily Southtown I found in the bid notice section the following from the Village of Alsip.  A bid for a replacement ambulance and a bid for a mini-squad emergency vehicle.  Looks like Alsip is returning to having a mini-squad run with their ambulance.  It recalls the 1980’s and 90’s.  Here are a couple of squads that started life in Alsip.

For TBT, I found this picture on the Alsip F.D. Facebook page.  Here is a picture of something I did not know they owned, a 1960’s Jeep FC-170.  Looks like a Chicago F.D. unit from the 1960’s.  Is it?  Anyone know?  Enjoy and comment.

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This is Alsip’s 1965? ALF pumper.  Unknown specs.  What I do like about it is the light on the roof.  Didn’t Chicago have lights like this?  What was the name of this light unit?  Enjoy, and comment if you’d like.

Hello,
These are pictures of Alsip’s 2 bumper-pumpers.  They are mid 1970s Ford/Darley?  Interesting in the pre-Seagrave era.  Feel free to add to any information,

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,
