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.
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.
The ambulance fleet has changed for the most part since our last visit.
- The newest ambulance is a 2013 Type I by Osage at Station 4, running as Ambulance 54.
- 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.
- Boat 1292 at Station 2 is a 2013, 24′ boat built by Clark Boats with a rigid hull.

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.Drew Gresik

Visited Carol Stream recently and photographed all three front line medic units with the new numbering. All were at Station 28 and I was able to get a group shot as well.
I was told they are expecting a new unit on a Freightliner chassis, a Medtec demo, to replace Medic 29.
