Nice piece of apparatus.

Tommy,

Are there any left?  Chicago just used their new one at a taxpayer fire the other day and you guessed it!  It didn't work.  On the upside, they will have more parking in Lincoln Park now.

someone correct me if i'm wrong but I think 212 was disbanded.  I went by it a little while ago and there was a sign saying it had been disbanded, there was also graffiti on the door

Engine company 212 was closed in 2003 due to budget cuts.  The Hi-Ex Foam unit at 262 was actually 212's old foam rig.
