McHenry FPD updates

Karl Klotz, Steve Redick, and Larry Shapiro visited all five stations of the McHenry Township FPD last week to update the site. In addition to new units, this is one of many area departments that is in the process of renumbering apparatus.

 

Among the new and updated units photographed;  there were three ambulances, two engines, two tenders, and a new boat.

  • McHenry went from a one tender department to a three tender department with a tender in all but the downtown station. The new twin 3,500-gallon tenders were built by US Tanker on IHC 7500 chassis with extended cabs.
  • Tender 1272 is at Station 2, and Tender 1274 is at Station 4.

McHenry Twp Tender 1272 is one of two twin units. These were built by US Tanker on 2013 IHC 7500 chassis with an extended cab. They carry 3,500 gallons of water and have a 500-GPM pump. Larry Shapiro photo

 

Two Pierce engines have been put into service since our last update and one was moved. The new engines are on the Impel XM chassis instead of the Velocity.

  • These are assigned as Engine 41 at Station 1 and Engine 43 at Station 3.
  • Engine 44 at Station 4 was formerly Engine 10 at Station 1.
  • There are two more engines on order, each coming in six month intervals.

  • Another new ambulance is a 2012 Type I AEV at Station 1, running as Ambulance 51.
  • Ambulance 52 at Station 2 is a 2010 Osage Type I that has also been added since our last update.

House fire in Hickory Hills 8-12-13

This from Drew Gresik:

Took in a Working Fire at 9150 S 87th Street in Hickory Hills. Got there well after the fire was out but got some nice rig shots. It appeared North Palos Engine 813 arrived first-in with Truck 31 from Roberts Park. Roberts Park Engine 31 was in reserve engine 3R, and Roberts Park Ambulance 32 was in reserve 3R. Here are a couple my shots. Thanks.
