This from Scott Matthews:
At the end of May, we received delivery of a new Ford F-450/Horton ALS ambulance. The new ambulance replaced our reserve ambulance, a 2002 Freightliner/Road Rescue. New Ambulance 52 was placed in service on July 1, 2016 at our Station 52 at 102 E Zarley. The ambulance that was serving as Ambulance 52, a 2007 Ford F-450/Medtec, was moved into a reserve role as Ambulance 53.Firefighter/Paramedic Scott MatthewsEast Joliet Fire Protection DistrictAssistant EMS Coordinator

This from Brad Steinweg:
I noticed that Flossmoor’s former 1372 is still listed so I have a picture of the current one. It is a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500. Not sure on the box, I believe it’s a Horton. The former 1372 was sold to Chicago Heights. I have included a picture of that as well. Photo credit on the current rig goes to Joseph Usselman.-Brad S.
Congratulations to the Fox River and Countryside Fire/Rescue District on the delivery of their new 2016 Wheeled Coach Type 1 4×4 ambulance. Cool bar HVAC, Liquid Spring hydraulic suspension, Impact suction system and Whelen LED lighting package will provide the district many years of service. Thank you to the Board of Trustees, and the district for your business. Welcome to the Fire Service, Inc. family!

This from Jeff Braun, Jr:
Here are photos of one of the Cicero Fire Department’s new ambulances. F-16, at the Town of Cicero’s 2016 National Night Out (8/2/16). This 2016 Ford F-450/AEV Type I ambulance replaces a 2007/2008 Ford E-450/Taylor-Made Type III ambulance. The other two front line ambulances (F-14/ F-15) have just been replaced as well, with identical F-450s. A new addition to these ambulances which has never been seen before on a Cicero ambulance is the reflective rear chevrons. Thanks. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)
