Chicago Fire Department dive response

From a reader:

Was biking on the lakefront and followed Squad 1 and the reserve 1A down the bike path to a dive response at Hollywood and LSD. Thought I heard the squad get released pretty quick over one of the guys' portables. Here's a few shots of the rigs there.
