New engines for Glenview

Pierce has delivery photos of two new engines for Glenview which were posted yesterday on the Pierce Flickr site. One is lettered for Engine 6 and the other for Engine 7. Both of these companies currently have 2006 Pierce Enforcer engines with standard pumper bodies. The new units are Pierce Arrow XT engines with rescue/pumper body configurations similar to Engine 8 which was built in 2009.

In a previous posting HERE, we had mentioned receiving information that one of the new engines would have a standard pumper body while the second would have a rescue/pumper body and live on the east side of town to run extrications similar to Engine 8. This other rescue/pumper was also to be the haz mat engine with the additional storage space while Engine 8 is the technical rescue engine. Since both new engines are the larger style, we’ll have to wait and see what information can be learned about the manner in which Glenview will outfit and deploy these two new units.

In addition to the fire department, the Village of Romeoville has an Emergency Management Agency (REMA) with an impressive fleet of 16 pieces of equipment which includes three light rescue squads, two of which have Command Light towers. They have a mobile command unit, a rehab unit, off-road units and seven marked sedans to transport their staff.

Glenview Engine 8

The new Pierce Arrow XT engine that was assigned to Glenview Engine 8 earlier this year represents several changes from the earlier apparatus for Engine 6 and 7. The heavier Arrow XT cab/chassis is the first noticeable change as compared to the Enforcer models purchased previously. The Arrow XT was also ordered with a heavy steel bumper instead of the chrome bumpers on the others. The next change is in the body design. Engine 8 has larger body with deeper ‘rescue-style’ compartments. The first compartment has a slide-out tool board, the rear compartment has a complete compliment of hydraulic extrication tools and there are ‘coffin-style’ compartments assessable from the top of the body which house the cord reels for the hydraulic tools and haz-mat supplies. Engine 8 is the first response haz-mat unit in town and along with truck 14 is part of the extrication response. Engines 6, 7, and 13 have ‘combi-tools’ for minor pin-ins but only Engine 8 and the truck have the full array of tools.

Glenview is said to be in the preliminary stages of ordering two additional engines, one of which will have the standard engine body while the second will replicate Engine 8. This ‘rescue-style’ engine though will not be setup for haz-mat but instead will carry supplies for technical rescue.
