Data and narrative for these photos is from THE AMERICAN LAFRANCE AERO CHIEF PROJECT

This website is the result of a twelve year project to document the production and history of the American LaFrance Aero Chief. The Aero Chief was introduced in 1962 and continued in production until 1974. 171 Aero Chief platforms were built. It came in three sizes: 70′, 80′, and 90′. Most Aero Chiefs were built on the custom American LaFrance chassis, but there were several built on various commercial chassis. Many of them had pumps and even more had tandem rear axles.

The photos on this site come from a variety of sources. I have photgraphed 65 of them, but the remainder come from many other photographers, including Glenn Vincent, Mike Martinelli, Scott Berringer, Kevin McKeon, Garry Kadzielawski, Bill Friedrich, Don Feipel, Bill Hattersley, Paul Barrett, Scott Mattson, John Floyd, Al Whitlock, Don Loeb, Dan Decher, Ralph Decker, Jon Umbdenstock, Ron Bogardus, Wayne Sorensen, Chuck Madderom, Richard Bartlett, Dave Stewardson, Ken Wible, John Langley, Todd Lincoln, Dan Jasina, Tom Shepherd, Mark Rzepnicki, Andrew Henry, Mike Bakunis, and a host of others whose names have faded from my feeble memory. If you have sent me photos and you can’t find your name, please contact me and it will be immediately corrected. Additional photos came from many of the fire departments who owned Aero Chiefs. To all these contributors, I am forever in your debt.

The information on this website will be updated as it becomes available. Any additional information or photos are always welcome. Please contact me through the link at the bottom of this page. Thank you and enjoy!

La Grange Park Live-Fire Training, 10/4/15

This from Eric Haak:

I had the privilege of attending live-fire training in La Grange Park Sunday morning (10/04).  Crews from the La Grange and La Grange Park fire departments did multiple evolutions simulating fires on the first and second floors of the frame structure.  The home was being torn down in order to make way for a new residence on the lot and was the oldest house in that part of La Grange Park.  The granddaughter of the original owners was on the scene and told me that she remembered when cows used to make their way down the dirt road in front.  While things were smoking up early in the evolutions, a raccoon surprised everyone by emerging from the eaves and making a run for it before things got too hot.  Thanks to all companies on the scene for their hospitality.
