New squad for the Lockport Township FPD

From the Lockport Township FPD Facebook page:

On September 23rd, 2020, the Lockport Fire District placed Special Operations SQUAD #6 in service. This vehicle carries all of the Technical Rescue Team equipment for high angle, confined space, trench, and structure collapse rescues. It will be housed at Station #6 and respond along with Truck #6 for any special operations in the fire district and when called by any mutual aid departments. This vehicle replaces a 1990 Fargo trailer.

Elk Grove Township FPD update

Bill Friedrich photographed Elk Grove Township Squad 11 which was missing from the site. This unit was recreated by members of the fire department. Now a technical rescue and haz mat squad, the unit previously had a 600-GPM pump and carried 300 gallons of water with 20 gallons of foam.
