As seen around … Manhattan

This from Eric Haak:

I took advantage of a slow Saturday (6/17) to go see some rigs that I do not normally get an opportunity to see. Far south suburban Manhattan Fire Protection District was training in a fairly large late-1800’s farm house which is currently owned by the park district. Once the training was over, the old house was burned to the ground. It was kind of an interesting setup as there was a historic round barn which needed to be protected so they had Peotone’s Truck 14 set up and ready just in case of an emergency.

As seen around … north of the border … in West Allis, WI

This from Crabby Milton:

The West Allis Fire Department had their annual Station 2 open house Saturday, May 20. It was a great time with plenty of apparatus on display. Here are two. The first is the 2016 SEAGRAVE pumper. The second is a 1991 SEAGRAVE ladder. The people I talked to love the new SEAGRAVE pumper. Most of the rigs are PIERCE many of which have had problems with suspension and rust issues. They told me that they have two more SEAGRAVE rigs on  order for next year or perhaps 2019.Please enjoy.

Crabby Milton.

As seen around … Roselle

This from Michael Maida:

I had an opportunity to take a picture of the new Pierce tower ladder for Roselle!  I believe it is a 2016 tower.  I was also able to get a picture of the Roselle ambulance.

Working fire in Niles, 3-10-17

This from Steve Redick:

This was an auto inside a detail shop  at 8821 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Niles … not much to see firewise but a few decent rig shots. Both of Niles’ new pumpers as well as their newer tower and Morton Grove’s newest engine
