From the Evanston FD Facebook page:

A preliminary drawing of what our new Engine Co. 22 is going to look like. The final specification is currently being worked on by Pierce and we should have the updated rendering shortly. A few minor modifications to this drawing but nothing major. We are looking to take delivery in October. A great THANK YOU to all of the citizens, city staff and city council for your continued support!

Box Alarm in Evanston, 12-5-16

This from Steve Redick:

Evanston Box Alarm at 635 Sherman Avenue. Three-story, multi-family apartment building. Looks like whatever rig has spare Engine 25 dropped a big supply line down the alley and gave it a good whack with the deck gun. Fire was blowing out the 2nd floor rear and got the porches going and communicated to an exposure building from what I could see from the remnants. I also notice a big solar panel array on the roof that must have made venting very difficult. The positioning of the aerial through the trees was well done. This was also my first view of the new Skokie tower. All the images and a brief video can be seen here
