The Addison Fire Department in Division 12 (Dupage County) recently put a new ambulance into service. They purchased a 2007 IHC 4300/Medtec Type I demonstrator which is currently in service as Medic 130 out of Station 3. An interesting note though for apparatus followers is that Addison rotates their apparatus between stations. The unit number for responses corresponds to the station where it is housed, not a particular unit. So, as this new unit is currently Medic 130, it might be assigned to Station 2 in the future where it will run (and be labeled) as Medic 120. Addison uses numbers on rigid signs which slide in and out of a frame on either side of the apparatus to depict the current assignment. This applies to the engines and trucks as well.
