Addison Fire District updates

This from Tim Right:

Hello, This is from DC Joe Leone
Hello Mr. Right, we purchased and are now building two new ambulances for the District. They should be done in July. They are from Horton and are F-550. We will sell just one of the old ones and have a total of 5 ambulances. 3 full time, one spare with gear on it and one in reserve. The two engines are in reserve and one of them is at station 1 the other is at station 3.
Also I have attached the new quints pictures so you can add them to their numbered station when you are updating.

Join us this Saturday (Nov. 29th) from 1 to 4pm for the Aurora Regional Fire Museum’s 6th annual holiday exhibit opening and Gingerbread FIREhouse Contest.More than a dozen gingerbread FIREhouses, fire stations, and burning buildings have been specially crafted for this event.  Contest rules state that all entries depict a firefighting themed architectural structure (real or imaginary), and that everything except for the base,  must be 100% edible. Over $500 in cash and prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges.


Also back for the holidays are our family of festive firehouse mice who have taken up residence to decorate the Aurora Regional Fire Museum. See CoCo as he bakes in the museum’s kitchen, Sparks as he tries to ring a fire bell, and Ashes as he decorates a 1948 fire engine…. We’ll give you a special treat if you can spot all the holiday mice.

The Gingerbread FIREhouse Exhibit opens — and will be judged — on Saturday, November 29th with special activities, FREE admission for the day, a visit from Santa the Fire Chief, storytelling, a holiday mouse hunt, and more. All gingerbread FIREhouses will remain on exhibit at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum though Saturday December 20th, and most will be available by raffle.
