Blue Island Fire Department news

From Blue Island Firefighters 3547

Last night on 2/28/2023 the City of Blue Island Illinois council members approved unanimously our collective bargaining agreement. This agreement is potentially one of the best agreements for the City of Blue Island residents in regards to medical care. In 2019 Metro South Hospital closed causing delays for patients needing definitive medical care. With this agreement Blue Island Fire Department will be upgrading its ambulances to provide advanced life support services. This will greatly benefit the citizens of Blue Island. We would like to thank the members of Blue Island who worked diligently and professionally alongside the members of Local 3547 to provide this service to our residents and also residents of neighboring communities.

thanks Dennis

House fire in Blue Island, 9-21-22

This from 312 FIRE PHOTOS:

Blue Island, Illinois had a box alarm on Sept. 21st, 2022 in a 2-sty brick home that was well-involved when the first companies arrived. An aggressive interior attack by Blue Island and Posen resulted in a victim being pulled out. Companies were hampered by the overgrowth around the property and the overhead power lines running in front.  Most photos can be seen here; #BlueIslandFD; #312firephotos;
