New ambulance in Morton Grove

Several months ago, the Morton Grove Fire Department placed a new ambulance into service out of Station 4. It is a 2011 Medtec Type I on an IHC 4300 chassis. This new addition shuffled a few units in the fleet. The previous Ambulance 4, a 1998 IHC 4700/Road Rescue became the reserve (Ambulance 4R) and a 1997 IHC 4700/Road Rescue which had been the reserve was taken out of service.
