New tower ladder for Elk Grove Village

This from Scott Peterson:

This is the new tower ladder for Elk Grove Village. It is scheduled to go in-service the 2nd week of September. Tower 7 in Steve’s pictures from the Elk Grove Township extra alarm is actually the reserve truck. We had been running a 75’ straight stick quint ( a Pierce Quantum, Truck 7), 2000-gpm/500 gallons & 30 of foam. That is sold and being stripped this week to prepare for the changeover to the new Quint 7.

The new tower specs are:

100′ Pierce Velocity, 2000gpm/300 gallons (This was a stock Pierce tower)

Tower 7, the 100′ Dash 2000 will go back to reserve once this is placed in service.

Elk Grove renumbers the Quint

Scott Peterson informs us that Elk Grove Fire Department Quint 8 is now Quint 7. It has been moved to Station 7 and will run as the spare when the tower is out of service. When the Quint is in service, it will be known as Truck 7.
