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.
