Evanston Fire & Life Safety Services Hosts Open House Feb. 23

Evanston will show off its new “green” engine between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday at Evanston Fire Station 5.

Love fire trucks and environmentally-sustainable equipment? Evanston Fire & Life Safety Services will be hosting an open house Saturday to show off its new green engine that leaves a small carbon footprint.

“It is a perfect fit for our community and will be responding to calls from Fire Station 5, which opened in 2008,” Fire Chief Greg Klaiber said in a press release.

Engine 25, the new greener fire apparatus, is a 2012 Pierce Engine/Pumper that can pump 1,500 gallons of water per minute from a 500-gallon water tank. Built to new National Fire Protection Association standards, the new engine features LED lighting, a computer terminal for receiving incident information, as well as medical and fire equipment.

  • When: 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Sat., Feb. 23
  • Where: Evanston Fire Station 5, 2830 Central St.
