Working fire in Chicago, 5-18-18

This from Steve Redick:

Friday (5/18/18) in the 6600 block of N Olmsted. Response here was a bit compromised as they had an alley garage at the same time causing a lengthy delay in the arrival of the RIT truck company. Fire had a good hold in the concealed spaces and knee wall areas necessitating considerable truck work. Late in the incident some members were caught in a bad spot on the roof when fire conditions changed rapidly, cutting off access to the aerial. Fortunately the free venting fire was knocked down quickly with inside handlines alleviating the situation.
Truck 9 was able to setup the aerial despite some tough conditions, a narrow street, tree branches, and wires all hindering the effort. One of the last images  shows the grateful victims of a rescue. All images all can be seen here.

I had a great opportunity recently and was able to shoot the new Squad 7 @ O’Hare …
Squad 7 is a 2016 Rosenbauer Commander 4000, 18′ walk-in rescue squad company

They are very nice! They seem like they are heavy duty and built well. Hopefully the fella’s have good luck with them.

Chicago orders new squads (more)

This from Niko Stefani:

Here is my video of the brand new Squad Co. 7 and 7A performing a quick demo with the snorkel. We then see all 4 rigs drive in a convoy to fleet where the old 7 and 7A will be spares. Enjoy!

Chicago orders new squads (more)

This from Steve Redick:

I had a great opportunity to attend a media event held by the Chicago FD Tuesday. All of the not yet in service 2-piece squad companies (1,2,5,7) were brought to Northerly Island (Many will remember this as Meigs Field) for an unveiling and photo shoot. A total of 8 units altogether were positioned for a once in a generation group photo with views of the skyline in the background. After the group shot we had the chance to shoot each individual rig as well. The lone lime green/yellow units are assigned to Squad 7 at O’Hare Field. I made several panorama images which are comprised of 6 or 7 large resolution shots. When combined they yield a large highly detailed image. The small versions I am sending do not truly showcase these images … to see a good full size view check out my website:
