Park Forest South FD history

This from a reader:

I recently saw some pictures of the former Park Forest South equipment both while in service and in the bone yard. I was wondering if there were more images available of all the original equipment. I was a POC from 1978 until I went into the Marines in 1981.
I have  a few photos from the Los Angeles County Fire Museum, which might bring back some memories for people like your pictures did for me!
Please let me know where I may obtain furter pictures of the PFSFD.
Thanks for documenting the Fire Service.
Jeff Wolven
Ps. I have included an image of the original shoulder patch.

Larry Shapiro recently visited Cary and was able to photograph the rest of the apparatus as well as a few units which have been renumbered (Squad 255 and Tanker 270). Among the photos is a 1928 antique American LaFrance engine and a new Medtec ambulance that was delivered recently.
