From JCL Graphix Facebook Page:

We were hired to install lettering and graphics on CFD’s Fireboat Christopher Wheatley. The boat went through an extensive rehab internally as well as the exterior. All the graphics and lettering were recreations matching the original. It is still a cool project and we are honored to be part of the Christopher D. Wheatley Memorial Foundation

Still & Box Alarm in a Chicago scrap yard, 12-6-15 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took in the still & box alarm Sunday at Cortland and Kingsbury, an industrial area with a fire in a large scrap metal operation. A big stack of junk cars was going. This location is right on the river, so as a result Engine 2, the large fireboat was sent to the scene. They eventually supplied a 4-inch line to Engine 55 which then supplied a multiversal. There was some thought about using the big guns, and the “crows nest” turret was raised on the rear of the boat, but there was not really a clear shot to the burning pile from the river location. Access in and around the scene was poor, and I was shooting directly into a bright, low sun … difficult conditions at best. I was able to get some interesting shots of the boat operation, as well as what I think was some kind of air monitor deployed by the haz mat company. All of the photos and video from this incident can be seen on my site

As seen around … Chicago

Chicago Fire Boat – Engine 2

This from Steve Redick:

this week I was able to knock a big item off my bucket list … to see the airshow from a boat. I gotta say it was an amazing opportunity, and although photo conditions were tough at best I was able to get some photos from a perspective many never see. We had a close encounter with Engine 2. I gotta say it’s looking very beat up. The paint is fading and all different colors. Got some images of the water display as well as some good views of all sides of the vessel. All of the boat images can be seen here:
