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

Mundelein also recently completed a full restoration of their 1925 Stoughton pumper. According to Mark Gaunky, this was “fully restored by retired Mundelein Lt. Jim Carew who saved it from being junked. It is a frame up restoration and 75% of the vehicle is original.” The unit has a 350 GPM pump and carries 150 gallons of water. It was originally donated to the village by Cardinal George Mundelein as a thank you for changing the town’s name to the Village of Mundelein. The original purchase price was $7,500 and the cost of the resoration was $65,000. The engine was in service for over twenty years.
