Melrose Park Fire Department history

From Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT – This truck belonged to the Melrose Park Fire Dept.  I know this is a Hazmat Unit, as indicated on the trailer.  The trailer is pulled by an IHC Mini Pumper.  And that is all I know.  So any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
