As seen around … Marengo

This from Michael Maida:

I had the opportunity to take pictures of the new Pierce Enforcer for Marengo.  Also it appears that Marango may have purchased Gurnee’s old E-One squad.

As seen around … Roselle

This from Michael Maida:

I had an opportunity to take a picture of the new Pierce tower ladder for Roselle!  I believe it is a 2016 tower.  I was also able to get a picture of the Roselle ambulance.

McHenry Township Fire District news

This from Michael Maida:

I attended the McHenry Township Fire District Station 5 grand opening.  The station will have a engine, ambulance, brush truck, and two trailers.  The engine is a 2009 Pierce. There will be 5 firefighters/paramedics on duty at a time.  I had the opportunity to witness the flag raising ceremony and the engine backing into quarters.  The neat thing with this station is whenever they get a call, there are red LED light strips in the ceilings that light up for 90 seconds.

Engine 42 was also at the open house, I was able to stop by station 1 and get a picture of the new Ambulance 51,

Sincerely,

Mike Maida

While I was at the open house, Engine 42 responded to a EMS run.  I was told they receive around 5,000 calls a year and 80% are EMS.
