Chicago Fire Department history

This from Steve Redick:

Another classic recording from my archive. The largest in a series of arson fires in this area, mainly started on back porches and in garages. This was very typical of the fire activity in the city then.
Some voices I recognize: Eddie Karas as 477, Dan Mahoney, Art Benker, and Jeff Rodrigues in the office. I made this recording on my old voice activated recorder back then and was 2 years away from starting my career in the office. This is some great stuff … give a listen

Chicago Fire Department history, 2-11 Alarm fire audio recording

This from Steve Redick:

Some more classic CFD radio. Warren Jonas was the call taker and yours truly gave out the still on the amplifier. Joe Pavlik was on the radio in the office. I think the 7th battalion was Mike Hughes.   2-11 3607 Fullerton. Nothing unusual about this but just a good old typical extra alarm.
