Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTmes.com:

The Chicago Fire Department on Sunday said it’s launched an investigation into a recent online post that alleged someone from a firetruck removed a Black Lives Matter banner in Kenwood near Lake Shore Drive.

In a Saturday post on Nextdoor, a hyperlocal social network for neighborhoods, Adele Cobbs of East Hyde Park said she saw a firetruck traveling north on Cornell Drive to East 47th St. when it suddenly stopped. She then alleged that two white men took down a Black Lives Matter banner.

“They literally obstructed traffic to do this,” Cobbs wrote. “Unbelievable! They are paid to serve our community and this is what they think about Black lives.”

Cobbs also shared an image of Truck 15  in Bronzeville, behind her vehicle. The post prompted community outrage, with many suggesting she report the incident.

CFD spokesperson Larry Langford said the department is aware of the post and is looking into the allegation.

“The CFD strives to serve every neighborhood with equal response and concern,” Langford said in a written statement. “We have no tolerance for any conduct that demeans any of our residents and visitors, all of whom we have taken a sworn oath to serve. I assure you we will rapidly get to the bottom of this and if found to be accurate discipline and corrective action will be swift and just.”
