As seen around … Dolton

This from Wayne VanBeveren:

Hello! I found the former Alsip ambulance I’ve attached photos of behind Dolton Station 16. It was donated to Dolton FD by Alsip
 
Also, they have an E-One engine on order and are also in the process of acquiring a former Evergreen Park engine. They’ll be getting rid of the tower ladder and both Sutphen engines.

4-Alarm fire in Calumet Park, 12-8-17

This from Eric Haak:

I arrived at this incident in Calumet Park just short of an hour and a half after the first in engine. The rear of the building was brought under control about 10 minutes after I arrived and after that, there was not much firefighting left to shoot other than rigs.

Alsip Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa:

These photos are from the late 1980 or early 1990s of the Alsip Fire Department.  I do not know the specifics, but I wanted to share.  Do departments today have the resources to have specialized equipment, like these?
Thank you,
Mike Summa
