Abbott Labs FD is added

Abbot Labs Fire Department Lake County ILAlthough the Abbott Labs Fire Department in Lake County (MABAS Division 4) runs out of two locations, they are responsible for roughly 37 facilities in Lake County. The department consists of 5 career personnel and 83 plant employees that are trained to respond in the event of an emergency. The Abbott Labs Fire Department shares space within Libertyville Station 3 (which is Abbott Labs Station 1) that is located at 13415 Atkinson Road, directly adjacent to the Abbott Park campus. Station 2 for Abbott is within the North Chicago campus along the lake front roughly 6 miles from the headquarters station.

This fire department has one engine and several support pieces which consist of vans and pickups. There is a new squad unit being outfitted at Station 1 which should go into service soon. It is a used Step-Van that will have equipment to support confined space and haz mat operations in addition to breathing air.

There is a small historic photo gallery for this department which includes their current engine on-scene at an extra alarm fire in Winthrop Harbor several years ago.
