And this from Lucas Hanson:

Just thought I’d pass along a picture of our new Truck 1 just about complete (anticipating in service in the next month or so), and also our new Engine 2 (which will be a clone of our new Engine 5) which is approximately 30 days out from completion.¬† These are not my pictures, but a member of ours Jeffrey Matthias.

Enjoy!

Lucas

Tri-State FPD house fire

This from Drew Gresik:

Hey guys,
I was in the area on Saturday 9/21 when Tri-State got toned out for a house fire in the 7100 block of Beechnut Lane in Darien. Got on scene shortly after the Full Still companies arrived on scene. Tower 529 laddered the roof and Engine 541 hit a hydrant. Small fire, not much to see except rig shots, but thought it would be interesting to send in based on the recent developments concerning the District. Thanks again.

MABAS Division 11 fire trucks

This from Dan McInerney:

Last week MABAS Division 11 conducted a division wide Blue Card drill at the Cicero FD training tower. Departments from Division 11 performed basic fireground activities with an emphasis on radio protocol. The rain and clouds didn’t make for great pictures but I managed to grab a few.
