Alsip Fire Department history

From Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT-Alsip Fire Department in the mid 1960’s.  The left apparatus, Eng. 1 is a 1947 Chevy/Central 500/300.  The middle became Eng. 2033. a 1964 ALF 900 1000/750. The right apparatus I do not know anything about it, except it is a mid 1950’s Ford.  The first photo I got from the Alsip FD facebook page, so thank you.  The color photos are from the 1990’s.  Enjoy, and feel free to comment.

As seen around … Midlothian

This from Mike Summa:

I went to an Independence Day parade in Midlothian.  I spotted a new chief’s buggy for Crestwood 2301.  Right behind was Crestwood Truck 2314, a 2006 Pierce Dash 2000-400-105′.  Great to be at a parade again.
