Addison Fire District news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

If all goes as planned early next month, a 15-year-old Addison Fire Protection District ambulance will be headed to Ukraine to help medical workers care for those wounded in Russia’s ongoing invasion. The district’s board is expected to retire the ambulance at the Aug. 3 meeting and donate it to the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America, which will then ship it to Ukraine along with several other donated ambulances.

Before it’s shipped, this ambulance will be on display at the village’s Rock ‘n Wheels car show Aug. 4, when visitors can write greetings and well wishes on it to those who will receive the vehicle in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Medical Association of North America said they’ll fill an ambulance with medical supplies and send it on a 747 to Ukraine. The donated ambulances come with information translated into Ukrainian to help the medical workers understand how things work in the vehicles they might not normally be accustomed to. 

About 20 ambulances have been donated since March. An ambulance donated last month by Naperville is already on its way to Ukraine.

Any agency looking to donate an ambulance should contact Christopher.M.Manson@osfhealthcare.org.

thanks Rob

Addison Fire District news

Excerpts from Fox32Chicago.com:

A truck carrying 14,000 chickens broke down in the heat and Addison firefighters’ quick thinking saved many of the birds by hosing them down saving thousands of them. After the truck broke down along I-90, the went to a nearby mechanics shop where the chickens were cooled.

Sadly, the fire department estimates that up to 1,000 chickens did not make it. They are egg hens, so the alternative for those that did make it is not horrible.

From the Addison Fire Protection District Facebook page:

Never the same day twice…AFPD is on the scene of a broken down semi full of chickens. The chickens are dying in the heat. Crews are using water and fans to keep them alive until they can be off loaded. #AddisonFPD

Fatal fire in Addison, 1-22-18

Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

Addison firefighters responded at 2:27 a.m. to a report from a bystander of a fire in the 700 block of South Ellsworth and found the blaze in a one-story, single-family home. Parts of the roof and ceiling had collapsed and crews could not enter areas of the home due to the fire’s large volume. No operating smoke detectors were heard inside the home.

Two people were found dead in one of the home’s rooms, and had not been identified Monday morning.

The Addison Police and Fire Protection District arson investigators, as well as the State Fire Marshall, are investigating the cause of the fire.
