As seen around …

This from Ryan Lee:

Found this picture from New Orleans just after hurricane Katrina.  There was a rumor that this demo rig demo’d a house as a demo for a CFD chief. Anybody know what this is???? Did Ferarra ever sell one??

New ladder for River Forest (update)

This from Josh Boyajian:

Here is a follow up to the post the other day. Here is a shot I took today of River Forest’s new Smeal ladder truck 219. From my understanding, it will follow the engine on all in-town fire calls. Also it will be going into surrounding towns auto-aid including Maywood.

New engine in Gary

This from Josh Boyajian:

Took a little ride over the border to Gary . Got a shot of one of their new engines. This is Engine 13, a 2012 Sutphen pumper. They have two other new Sutphen engines at Engine 7 and 11. They also have two new ladders which are HME. I attached a small shot of the cab door of New Truck 2.
