New squad for MESS Canteen

From Tim Olk:

The new Mess Canteen M-5 , quartered at the Barrington Countryside FPD station on Pepper Road, is X-Woodstock FRD. One of the features of the new unit is slide-out trays for supplies at deployments replacing the need for folding tables alongside the squad.

Where are they now … Frankfort.

Kevin Griffen found this description from 2008:

On April 7, 2008, Meshoppen Volunteer Fire Department took delivery of a 1997 KME 100 ft. Aerial Cat. Over the next few months, members will be doing aerial & truck company ops. training. After routine maintenance & inspection, Ladder 2 will be in service. MVFD purchased the Ladder from Frankfort, Illinois Station 2.
