Dixmoor Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This is Dixmoor’s Squad 2405.  It is a 1990 IHC/Frontline Squad.  Since they went out of business, I don’t know what became of it.  Just wanted to share,
Enjoy,

Blue Island Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
This is Blue Island Truck 2104.  It started as a 1951 ALF 85-foot Quint.  In 1980, this was sent to ALF again in University Park to have a new Century cab installed.  It was the first unit to have a white top, which is a Blue Island hallmark now.  This was in service until 1997, when a new E-One tower was purchased, a remarkable 46 years of continuous service and durability.  Enjoy!
