Carol Stream FPD – ambulances updated

Larry Shapiro submitted the following:

Visited Carol Stream recently and photographed all three front line medic units with the new numbering. All were at Station 28 and I was able to get a group shot as well.

I was told they are expecting a new unit on a Freightliner chassis, a Medtec demo, to replace Medic 29.
