Area apparatus and station rundown

From Tyler Tobolt:

Shared with you is a complete list that was created in 2017 with each type of apparatus per department along with the MABAS division, station number, station location, and dispatching center.

This list is modified often, but we understand there may be some mistakes / apparatus that have moved to other stations. If anyone notices anything that needs to be fixed please let me know.

New tender for the Coal City Fire Protection District

From Coal City FPD FaceBook:

We would like to introduce you to the New 3117. This is a 3500-gallon tender for rural response (without fire hydrants), replacing a 1989 tender. It was built right here in Illinois by Alexis Fire Equipment Company. We thank our salesperson Dan, for a great experience! Our next steps are fitting it with all its equipment and training our members on its usage. We hope to have it in full service soon.; #CoalCityFPD; #Freightliner; #AlexisFireEquipment; #FireTruck; #tender;
