New ambulance for Bridgeview FD (more)

From the Fire Service, Inc. Facebook page:

Congratulations to Chief Mike Daly and the members of the Bridgeview Fire Department on the recent delivery of their third Wheeled Coach Type I ambulance. This custom unit features a Ford F450 chassis with a liquid spring suspension system, all Whelen LED emergency, scene and interior dome lighting, custom cabinetry designed specifically for the Bridgeview Fire Department, custom gear compartment, power windows and door locks. The exterior showcases a custom “Coolbar” HVAC system, and OptiCom System. Last but not least, a beautiful custom paint configuration, awesome graphics complete with a full rear chevron, and aluminum alloy wheels complete this unit. It is the most recent purchase for this busy Southwest suburban Chicagoland department, and is a welcome addition to their Wheeled Coach fleet.

New ambulance for Bridgeview FD

This from Keith Grzadziel:

The Bridgeview Fire Department is expecting delivery of a brand new Wheeled Coach conversion. It is mounted on a 2019 Ford F-450 chassis with the liquid suspension. This will be the 3rd Wheeled Coach in our fleet. Hopefully we should have it by early next week at the very latest. 

The current Ambulance 406 will be renumbered to 412 and designated as a ready reserve.  Our spare, Ambulance 426, is decommissioned and will be given to our EMA. The current reserve, Ambulance 409, which was purchased used from the Homer FPD, will become our spare.
