This from Danny:
Came across this last night on google while searching for Chicago engine info
and from David:
Just came across this photo of a new Oshkosh Striker 8×8 equipped with Snozzle delivered recently to O’Hare. I’m not sure, but it seems like this news may be already a few weeks old. I think this is the first 4-axle ARFF unit to serve with the CFD.
Fire Service Inc Facebook page posted these images of the new engines 9 and 10. 2014 E-One Cyclone II extended cab engines. 2000-GPM pumps with 1000 gallons of water and 250 gallons of foam. They have several more pictures.
thanks Dan & Erik

This from Mike Lopina:
While at O’Hare (ORD) for annual ARFF & Haz-Mat training, I was able to capture some rigs in between evolutions. 5-3-1 carries a Zumro tent, HVAC equipment for the Zumro & some decon equipment and is based at ORD Rescue Station 1. 8-8-1A is currently housed at the AMC building at ORD. 6-5-7S (Spare), Engine 9 & the new 2-7-8 were at the training facility for Zumro tent set up training. 6-5-T is the training rig for the pit and is a 1988 Oshkosh T-3000 crash rig. 2-9-8 is the training officer for ORD and 2-9-12 is currently the coordinator for the live fire simulators. Also attached is Lockport Rescue 6 getting ready to attack a fire in the Pit and Orland Engine 8 (Reserve) pumping handlines for the Pit and the Wheel/Brake/Interior simulator.Mike Lopina
