Addison Fire District updates

This from Tim Rightlander:

I checked with the Addison fire protection district to see the status of the tower ladder for sale and the 1990 Pierce engine, The response has been forward to you as well as the comments about going ahead with the purchase of a new engine.
Tim
The tower was sold last fall or early winter to a fire department out in New York State. The engine that you speak about is at Technology Center of DuPage on Swift road. They store it for us and with that they can use it to train the high school kids. It just went up for sale for $15,000 yesterday. It’s a 1991. We have received direction from the board to pursue a new engine and in fact we are almost done with the specification list. I anticipate that the specification list will go out to chosen vendors on Friday or early next week. The new engine will be replacing the one we are selling from TCD.

Lombard Special Alarm 3-25-13

This from Steve Redick:

This is a place I very seldom get out to … I was halfway close so I took a ride. They were planning for something big I guess, but it was over when I arrived. I suspect some kind of machinery fire. I did manage to get some decent rig shots, and I experimented with a little fill flash too. I have never really seen the 2-piece Carol Stream Squad … kinda neat. The shots of the Lombard engine hooked up to the hydrant will make a good entry in my Suburban Rigs at Work Volume 2 someday …

New quint for Addison

This from Ryan Wyckoff:

Just giving you a heads up, there is a new Quint for Addison Fire Protection District sitting at Global.  It is a Pierce Arrow 75′ Aluminum ladder, 1500 gpm pump and I think 500 gallon tank.  It is already lettered but not numbered.  I did not have my camera with me so no photo.  They were hoping Addison would take delivery within the week.
