Wheeling Fire Department patchAs of 0700 this morning, Station 42 went into service for the Wheeling Fire Department. Housed in the police station complex at 1 Community Drive, Wheeling Fire is running Engine 24 out of one of the apparatus bays which used to house Station 24 before they moved to 499 S. Milwaukee Avenue. If the address of Station 42 is confusing, it is the new address to the building that used to be known as 255 W. Dundee Road.

Engine Company 24 is now running out of Station 42. Station 23 has Ambulance and Engine 23 staffed, and the headquarters Station 24 has Battalion 24, Ambulance 24, and Truck 42 that are staffed. The truck company can jump to Ambulance 42 if needed or Squad 42.
