Glendale typically updates its fleet with a few apparatus a year. I personally don't have any specifics yet. I do know there is a new Ladder Tender under construction to replace LT152. Not sure on the completion date or manufacturer. I saw one pick and it kinda looked like either a Ferrara Inferno, or possible a Spartan chasis, but not sure. It has been rumored that 2 engines are being spec. for 2008 delivery. I have noticed that Engine 151 has been running it's reserve/retired engine for several months instead of the usual '04 Saulsbury Scorpion.

I'll have to search for some of my actual pictures on my old computer, but I did find a gentleman who run's this website, which includes in the link below pictures of Glendale's Fire Prevention Parade. If I remember right he is also a member of this board, but can't remember 100%! Anyways, there are apparatus from all over the valley on the page including Glendale. Glendale Engine 159 and Squad (RRT) 159 are about a third of the way down. You will also see the old LT152 that I believe should also be replaced with an identical SVI soon. And yes, I did hear of HM157 being replaced with another SVI. Its due for replacement, as far as I know it's the origial HM unit for the city.
Any rumors floating around on what mfgs. (Pierce E-
one etc..) they are looking at for their new engines ? will they be like the last 6 with rear pump panels or will they go back to the standard pump panels.
