Bill Friedrich, retired Downers Grove Battalion Chief,  tells us that the Downers Grove FD has signed a contract with Fire Apparatus and Supply Team  to purchase a 2011 Spartan Sirius Smeal 100′ platform. The truck will have a 2000-gpm pump and 300-gallon tank. The vehicle is a stock unit. The cab will be painted black over red and will have our traditional black stripe. Delivery is expected this summer. This is the first non Pierce rig in many years.
