New ambulance in Rolling Meadows

Ron, one of our readers, informed us that Rolling Meadows received a new ambulance from Medtec on an IHC 4300 chassis. It is painted black over red which is a first for Rolling Meadows. It is unclear when the ambulance was delivered, since the photo below depicts the unit in bright sun with leaves on the trees.

South Chicago Heights and Park Forest will share ambulances

Dennis McGuire, Jr. spotted an article HERE which

The South Chicago Heights Village Board approved a new ambulance sharing agreement with Park Forest Monday night.

The agreement with Park Forest was approved during the board’s regular business meeting. The village’s former agreement with Crete Township was withdrawn when the latter built a third station, said Fire Chief Larry Nardoni. Park Forest has had a sharing agreement with Matteson and other communities for about 10 years. It will cost South Chicago Heights $500 to buy into the arrangement for one year, he said.
