New apparatus for Glenview

As posted previously HERE and HERE, the Glenview Fire Department took delivery of a new quint for Truck 14. The web site has been updated to show the new truck, though it’s not expected to be in service until June. Here are some additional images of the new Truck 14 and a comparison shot of the previous Truck 14, which will become Truck 14R/Truck 29.

The Village of Northfield reportedly contributed $100,000 towards the purchase of this new unit. In return for that investment, Truck 14R will be housed at Northfield Station 29. It will run as Truck 29 for responses where Northfield is due out of town with a truck. Glenview will respond into Northfield for alarms and fires. When Glenview Truck 14 is out of service for any reason, the older unit will return to Glenview as Truck 14.

There are a few differences between the new unit and it’s predecessor. They include:

  • a slightly longer wheelbase due to an elongated pump panel which now incorporates the Smart Power 10-KW generator and a XRT power system for the Hurst tools

  • an extended front bumper with a Hurst high pressure cutter and spreader with 100′ reels

  • all LED lighting
  • small tool compartment behind the cab
  • Northfield’s name on the sign board

  • Arrow XT instead of Dash cab and chassis
  • short barrier clearance doors

Glenview also recently put a new ambulance in service at Station 6. Having purchased one of the last Medtec units prior to the shutdown, they have a 2013 Type I Medtec on an IHC 4300 chassis similar to the rest of their ambulances. The new unit has LED lighting and a slightly different paint scheme on the box that features black near the roof. This replaces the 2007 IHC/Medtec from Station 6 which has become the spare ambulance. The previous spare, a 2001 Freightliner FL60/Road Rescue has been disposed of.

North Palos FPD

This from Martin Nowak:

A few months back, I’ve shown Ambulance 812 with a black grill. Another North Palos Ambulance (802) drops the chrome grill for a black one. I believe these black grills fit their color scheme a lot better. I’ve never seen any other Ford E-series ambulance from the current generation with a black grill. Ambulance 802 is a 2010 Ford E-450/Osage. I also attached a recent picture of A812 along with Roberts Park Engine 32 and Ambulance 32.
