Miller Woods Fire Protection District history

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This was part of the Miller Woods Fire Protection District near Steger, Illinois.  I believe it to be a mid-1960s GMC van.  I know that it’s not a fire truck, but I just think that it’s neat looking.  Unique.  I hope that others will enjoy,
Thank you,
Mike S.

Dixmoor Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This is from the Dixmoor Fire Department.  It is a 1953 Chevy/DARLEY 500-GPM panel truck.  The booster inside is 200 feet of 1 1/2 inch hose.  I guess for it’s time, this was state-of-the-art and fit the requirements of this department.  Hope you enjoy,
Mike S.
