As seen around … Elgin

This from Mike Maida:

On Tuesday morning, I happened to see the Elgin Fire Department setting up for what appeared to be a dive rescue drill at the lake behind Sherman Hospital.  Photos included show the 2015 E-One, Engine 5, Engine 3, a Seagrave, and Medic 1.  Engine 5 has a bell on it that came from their previous rig, a 2001 KME.

Enjoy!

As seen around … Rockford

This from Mike Maida:

I recently stopped by one of the Rockford Fire Stations and took photos of one of their 2013 Pierce engines.  This one is Engine 4 a 2013 Pierce Saber PUC rescue engine.  The engine is ALS equipped with an access door to the EMS compartment on the officer’s side.  This is one of 3 designated “Extrication” engines in Rockford.  The other two are Engines 8 and 11.  This engine is heading out on a EMS run.  The third photo is Rockford Quint 5 the 2012 Pierce Velocity 105-ft quint.

Sincerely,
 
Mike Maida

Bloomingdale Tender 21

This from Mike Maida:

 Attached is a picture of Bloomingdale Tender 21, the 2011 Impel Pumper Tanker.  I saw this rig out and about and thought that this might be of interest as it has to do with the re-numbering of the rigs in DuPage County.

Sincerely
Mike Maida
