Oak Forest Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Oak Forest officials have signed an intergovernmental agreement with the Orland Fire Protection District to have the south suburb’s fleet repaired at OFPD’s new maintenance facility, Fire Chief Gary Kasper said at a city council meeting.

The department first submitted a request for proposals to source local companies who would be able to repair the aging fleet within the department’s budget. While two companies responded to the proposal, neither was cost effective enough for the department.

Throughout the process, Kasper met with OFPD officials and finally decided the cost of utilizing the district’s maintenance workers and center would be best for the budget and equipment.

Oak Forest vehicles will only be brought to the new facility for preventative maintenance and occasional repairs. The agreement does not mean either department will share or exchange equipment.
