New Network TV Show Chicago Fire – update

One of our readers found a link to an NBC article on the filming of Chicago Fire that includes a gallery of images from the Columbus Avenue scene this week. Looking at the photos will answer several reader questions that have been posed about the apparatus being used as Squad 3 with an unconventional … unique color scheme. Also there is a large blue stripe that has been added to the ambulance.

Tim Olk submitted images of the three suppression rigs being used for the show. Squad 3 is obviously the spare haz mat (G-492, 1989 Spartan Gladiator/Saulsbury) but the shop numbers have been removed from the engine (1995 Spartan/Luverne) and the truck 1995 or 1996 Seagrave). The Ambulance carries shop #C055 which is a 200 Ford/MedicMaster (American LaFrance) that had been assigned to Ambulance 47.
