River Forest Truck 219 was put back in service on 4/1/14. Repairs to the cab were made and a new ladder installed. Other additions include a reverse camera and a slim line LED lightbar across the center of the grill.
This from Steve Redick:
They had a … show at work the other day … got to see the new academy truck (finally) and this CPD command center … probably something I’ll never get close enough to see again. Thought you might find these interesting.
This from John Tobin:
How does the song go … “reflections of my life.” Well the pictures here are a reflection of time and how it’s moved on. Throughout that time, it was quite a ride and after 34 years I can’t believe it’s over! I made many friends, some enemies, and pretty much did what I set out to do in 1979 when I was hired by the EFD. (Elgin Fire Department)
I said more than once … “one day I rolled under a rig that needed fixing and when I rolled out my first wife had left me, the kids were grown, and I was an old man” … there is a lesson there. Some have changed their colors so many times over the years they become someone completely different. I never thought I was anything special, but I had a special job and I was very fortunate to have it!
There is a saying “don’t confuse me with the facts.” When that became a reality, rather than just a joke … I knew my end was near. So if you will, glance at the pictures and see if any of them will take you on a journey. Time for the next chapter in my life and the EFD will do just fine without me.
As the French say … C’est la vie
This from John Tulipano:
On April 9th I was able to attend some afternoon drills at NIPSTA with companies from MABAS Division 3 running a simulated building explosion and collapse with several autos on fire and a civil disturbance!
