This from Drew Gresik:

Hello again,
I have attached photos of the Downers Grove 2012 Freightliner/Medtec ambulance and Western Springs 2002 Spartan/Luverne Engine 1711. On the department pages, the old DG Ambulance 2 is pictured and on the WS page, the old 1721 is shown with outdated lights and graphics. Please feel free to use my attached photos for an update on those two station pages! Thanks again.
