Can anyone be of assistance:
Good morning… my name is Sharon Doty and I live out in DeKalb IL. I’m inquiring about a Chicago Fire Department patch. Not certain if I’m connecting to the right place or if you can lead me in the right direction. My sons dad was a firefighter/chief in Sycamore local 3042 for 23 years. He’s now retired. My 10 year old has taken up collecting fire department patches. We go into Luries Children’s Hospital every 6 months for his Dr. appointments. On our last visit, we walked across to Harry Carays for lunch and passed Firehouse 98. The young man working that day was outside returning from a call and he was SO kind to take a few minutes to talk with my son and even asked if he’d like a picture next to the engine. Quin has talked about that every time we hear a siren go off. It made quite an impact. The firefighters name was Mohammed. Anyway, I would like to see about getting a patch either from Chicago or Firehouse 98. Not certain if they have different patches in the city. I want to put it in his Christmas stocking. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you,
Sharon Doty
