New Ambulances in Lake Villa

The Lake Villa Fire District received two new ambulances. They are Type III units built in 2011 by Osage on Ford E-450 chassis. According to information received by Jeff Rudolph, neither of them are numbered yet and both identical. ¬†As best as can be determined, Ambulance 243, the 05′ was retired. Old Ambulance 242 became Ambulance 244, Ambulance 244 became Ambulance 245. It is not clear where old Ambulance 241 went. The two new units will be assigned to Ambulances 241 and 242.

As reported HERE, the new ambulances are painted red. This is a departure from the current ambulance fleet that is painted blue and white and was purchased as part of the Lake Villa Rescue Squad.
