Mundelein is on the site

Mundelein FD Sutphen 75' quint

The Mundelein Fire Department in Division 4 has two stations that are packed full of apparatus. Both stations have been added to the site with photos submitted by Jack Connors. The station photos will be added shortly along with the Mundelein patch. As mentioned previously HERE and HERE, their newest rig is a 2009 Sutphen mid-ship 75′ quint which runs out of Station 2 on Lake Street. Other than this Sutphen, their fleet of suppression vehicles are all Pierce, the newest of which is a 2003 pumper/squad.

updates coming soon!

It’s been several days since there has been a new posting to the site, but travel and other duties have grabbed all of the available time. Within the next few days though, several updates will be completed. Contributors have been busy photographing apparatus and it takes a bit of time to collate everything and place all the images into the proper spots.  Here though is some of what is coming:

  • Jack Connors has submitted several CFD updates as well as the Mundelein Fire Department apparatus

final CFD stations are online

Today, the final 16 CFD firehouses were uploaded to the site! This is a milestone that we have been waiting for and required the assistance of several people to accomplish. As with many postings, this does not mean that every piece of apparatus is represented … just that each house has an active link. There is 1 (and only 1) house with no images posted at all … rigs or house, but that is an exception.  otherwise, every link has at east one … perhaps all images posted.

Four links on the CFD index listing remain inactive as of today … these are the Quinn Fire Academy, The Special Operations warehouse plus the two Air Mask locations.  These links will be activated soon.

It is possible that a list this comprehensive representing the Chicago Fire Department does not exist on any website … and when the remaining placeholders are filled this will truly be a first!

With that said, here is a listing of the current additions to the site with images submitted by Jack Connors, Karl Klotz, Steve Redick and Hank Sajovic

1st District: Engine 58, Engine 112

2nd District: Engine 68, Engine 71 and Engine 94.

4th District: Engine 57, Engine 113.

5th District: Engine 116

6th District: Engine 73, Engine 74, Engine 82, Engine 92, Engine 104, Engine 120, Engine 126 and Truck 24
