This from Mike Summa:

This is Orland FPD’s E6083.  It started life I believe as a 1971 American LaFrance 1500/500.  As the picture shows it was rehabbed in 1988 with a Century 2000 cab.  Please enjoy and comment.

Midlothian Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

Found this neat picture on the Midlothian FD facebook page.  A great picture of their department from the 1960’s.  I do think the Ford sitting there is an old Chicago Fire Patrol truck from the 50’s.  Please comment and enjoy.
