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;

East Dundee Fire District news

From Legacy Fire Apparatus Facebook page:

Sometimes the victories follow an unexpected situation, even a negative. For our friends at the East Dundee Fire District, the situation started with a collision that was not their fault. Fortunately none of their personnel were injured but their Alexis custom pumper was down for a bit. In these days of longer production times and intense backlogs, we reached out to our partners at Alexis Fire Equipment and their body shop for assistance. They stood up tall and helped to get this rig back in service. They also provided a loaner fire engine to help East Dundee answer the call. We are very glad to report that East Dundee’s engine is complete and back at home. The customer is everything! Family owned, Family driven!; #EastDundeeFPD; #firetruck; #crash;

Bradley Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

 The 2023 year for the Bradley Fire Department might go on record as one of its most transitional in its history.

The 30-member department — nine of whom are full-time officers — will be moving into its approximate $2.5-million second fire station along Newtown Drive in the northeastern portion of the village. The department had hoped to be in the location more than six months ago, but supplies and finishing-touch work have delayed that target.

In addition, a $237,000 ambulance was placed on order in September with American Response Vehicles, of Columbia, Mo., and could be delivered late this year. Also, a $584,546 fire engine was unanimously OK’d by the Bradley Village Board with Alexis Fire Equipment and delivery of the department’s third engine could happen in December. The village will pay for the new engine prior to delivery, the village will receive a modest $9,000 discount, and the fire department was able to find an existing new chassis in stock at Alexis which saved another $20,000.

The new engine and ambulance will be stationed at the Newtown fire station.

Fire Chief Don Kaderabek said the department had been somewhat neglected in previous years and for a village with growing areas of business and residences, these are needed resources for the community’s protection.

Currently, the village has two fire engines. One is 21 years old and will remain part of the fleet as a back-up.

thanks Dennis
