As reported earlier, Evanston has received their new Pierce Arrow XT engine for Station 23. This has a 1,500-GPM pump and a 500-gallon water tank.  It features an extended cab with a raised roof and non-painted roll-up compartment doors similar to Engine 21. The cab features short barrier style doors which is a first for Evanston. It carries Pierce job #23324. As pictured here, it does not yet appear to have been adorned with the Northwestern University Wildcat emblem as was speculated since the university provided funding for this unit.
