What is 'LATCH' found in my owners manual? These are all good questions that can have anyone baffled. Between the number of ... (Full Story & Photos)

Farewell Squadzilla, Thank you for your service to Prospect Heights.

D/C Timothy Jones, February 25

Our 1996 “Squadzilla” is headed for semi-retirement at the Jay Vermont Volunteer Fire Department. Squadzilla was nicknamed by visiting children due to the dragon cartoon on her side.

Purchased new in 1996, Squadzilla was originally designed to bring every conceivable tool to the scene of an incident due to the fact that back in the 90’s we only had 3 firefighters on duty manning one vehicle, said ... (Full Story & Photos)
