Flossmoor Fire Department update

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.

Lake County Indiana MABAS update (more)

This from Brad Steinweg:

I have come across a few articles on the page regarding Lake County (IN) switching to a consolidated channel. I have gotten the frequencies for these channels. There are 2 channels that do the dispatching; 154.815 and 154.445, however I have received more traffic over 154.815 so I’m unsure if the second frequency is a backup. For MABAS incidents they use the IFERN frequency 154.265. I believe Hammond and Gary may have private channels, as I have not picked up any traffic from them.
