These are from the Pierce Flickr page. New engines for Orland Park FPD. Station 4 has been running a Pierce quint for several years. It’s interesting they’re are getting an engine again. Hopefully someone has more info on the new assignments.

Norwood Park Box Alarm, 1-28-14 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Here are the photos to match the previous video. From what I was told the fire involved the chimney and wood burning stove in the basement, and the fire ran up to the attic. Make no mistake it was bitter cold, several degrees below zero. It was tough to do anything. Finally got some shots of the new rig working. This was a done deal in very short order.

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

Still alarm fire in Schiller Park 7-18-19

This from Mike Lopina:

Schiller Park FD - 10511 W United Parkway
Driving north on I-294 and saw a header & heard traffic on fireground that indicated a fire in/on the roof. Bldg at 10511W United Pkwy is a 1sty non combustible 350x150. Looked like it was going to become an extra alarm fire from the tollway, but by the time I made my way there (10 minutes), it was out, companies had made a great knock and contained the fire to a rooftop HVAC unit with some extension to the roof deck. In addition to Schiller Park Eng 5, TL 5, Amb 5 & BN 5; Franklin Park Trk 2, Leyden Qnt 133, Norwood Park Eng 101 & Franklin Park BN 490. Awesome job by the crews working; especially considering the heat.
