New engine for Westchester

The Westchester Fire Department in Division 20 has reportedly purchased an E-ONE Typhoon engine. The unit which was a demonstrator has a 2,000-GPM pump and carries 1,000 gallons of water. Presumably it also has a foam tank.

Bensenville FPD is on the site

The Bensenville Fire Protection District has been added to the Division 20 portion of the website. Bensenville has two stations although they used to have a third station which has been closed and will be demolished in the near future as part of the O’Hare Airport Expansion and Modernization Project. All of Bensenville’s rigs are pained black over red with the exception of Engine 86 which is their reserve piece. The fleet used to sport a white over red color scheme. The tanker and the tower ladder were repainted to match the new rigs.

Tanker 92, a 1988/1989 Ford Darley, won’t be on the roster much longer as the district has put it up for sale. They expect it to be gone during the summer.

In other Bensenville news, as of May 1st they are being dispatched by NORCOMM and no longer by Bloomingdale. The new frequency is 154.370.
