Mundelein Fire Department updates

This from Mark Gaunky:

  • Here are a couple of pictures of our new engine, it did not arrive in November as we hoped. But, looking at the pictures it’s getting close to completion and we expect it in December.
  • The tower ladder that we purchased is not yet in-service as we are finishing up the training on it. It has though responded on a few calls already while department personnel have been out on driver’s training. All of the equipment is installed, but we are waiting for the new signs to come for the side of the ladder, and we are upgrading the emergency lighting on the basket and rear of the vehicle.
  • I am attaching a picture from a structure fire we had last month, which started in the fireplace area showing what first arriving units found.
