Skokie Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

The Skokie Fire Department (SFD) was honored by two state agencies this month for it’s effort to educate residents on fire safety and smoke alarm installation. The SFD was recognized by the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance and the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal for outstanding contributions.

Skokie worked with both offices to launch the Be Alarmed! smoke alarm installation program last year. The two groups distribute fire safety educational materials and 10-year smoke alarms to participating Illinois fire departments who then distribute them to residents. All the educational materials and smoke alarms are paid for by the IFSA and OSFM offices. In 2018, the fire department installed 168 alarms in 50 homes.

Kenosha Fire Department news

This from Keith Grzadziel:

These are a few pics of the new mega station being built in Kenosha.  It is going to be designated as Station 1. The department is relocating the companies from Stations 3 and 5
which will both be closed upon completion.  Ironically their former Station 1, which is still connected to their city hall, has been closed for several years with apparatus shuffed around and reassigned.
