As seen around … Downers Grove

This from Daniel Hynd:

Downers Grove Tower 102 has been running in a 2002 E-One Hurricane from Phenix City, Alabama for the last couple of days. I was able to get a picture of it at a fire in Lisle. The rig is still labeled for Phenix City and does not have any DGFD markings on it as of now. I have no information regarding the circumstances of why they have it, but I did manage to find the listing for it

As seen around … Chicago

This from Steve Redick:

I finally had a chance to view this memorial. I remember the night this happened, I was listening to the CFD radio.
I always thought this was inside the firehouse.. It was done well and worth a look. A very sad story and I can’t imagine the suffering he went through before he died.
