The North Aurora Fire Protection District in MABAS Division 13 (Kane County) has two stations. One station (#2) has only two engines; a front line and a reserve. The main station has both of the department’s ambulances, the battalion chief, two engines, and a tower ladder. ¬†In addition, they have a second building on the grounds which houses the special teams including several TRT units and a boat. The fire suppression apparatus was mostly purchased from Pierce with a 1986 Arrow engine, a 1996 Lance, a 2006 Dash, and a 2001 Dash tower ladder. The frontline engine out of Station 2 is an E-ONE.

Recent deliveries

Bill Friedrich has submitted photos of four recent deliveries to departments in Divisions 12, 13, and 19. It’s interesting to note that the first three of these new units are all painted black over red. Wheaton has had this color scheme for many years. St. Charles’ apparatus used to be white over lime green and they changed to black over red several years ago. Oak Brook Terrace has been white over red for many years, changing to black over red with this new engine.
