Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Buffalo Grove firefighters launched their version of the annual Fill-the-Boot campaign Saturday with the inaugural Fire Up! Food Truck Festival fundraiser. Organizers estimated that more than 4,000 area residents joined Local 3177 firefighters at Woodland Park, helping to raise over $6,300 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The food truck festival was a departure from firefighters and other volunteers standing in roadways, approaching vehicles in traffic to solicit donations.

Nine food trucks, a Fire Up! Kids Zone, live music by cover band Focal Point and a beer tent featuring Prairie Krafts Brewery were on hand. And attendees bought a sleeve of raffle tickets and dropped them in more than two dozen rubber fire boots for the chance to win sports tickets to dinner – all donated by local businesses.

Food trucks included Three Legged Tacos, Cookies with Flavor, Ms. Tittles Cupcakes, Big Mama’s Kitchen & Catering, Coastline Cove, A. Sweets Girl, Mario’s Cart, My Funnel and Your Sister’s Tomato where one family enjoyed a sausage pizza.

The International Association of Firefighters annually host a national fill-the-boot campaign for MDA. The Buffalo Grove Professional Firefighters have raised $150,000 for MDA since 2010.

From the Village of Buffalo Grove website:

The Village of Buffalo Grove is mourning the loss of 23-year veteran, Firefighter/Paramedic Kevin Hauber 51, who bravely fought against colon cancer for the last four years before succumbing to the disease Saturday, January 27, 2018. Hauber was surrounded by his family at the time of his passing, which included his wife and four young daughters.

“Kevin fought long and hard all while still on the job protecting the people of Buffalo Grove, which was his true passion. He grew up in Buffalo Grove and became a firefighter because his childhood dream was to protect and serve,” the Hauber family said in a statement.

Growing up, he and his twin brother Jim, also a firefighter/paramedic with the Buffalo Grove Fire Department, idolized the characters on the 1970’s show, EMERGENCY! which profiled the crew of a California fire department. In 2014 while undergoing chemotherapy treatments, Hauber met one of the stars of the show, Randy Mantooth, and was able to explain to him how the show motivated he and his brother to become firefighters. Mantooth signed a picture of them as little boys during the meeting, an experience that Hauber cherished.

Hauber began his full-time career in Buffalo Grove in 1994 as a firefighter/paramedic. In 2004, he joined the Associated Firefighters of Illinois (AFFI) Honor Guard, which exists to provide final honors to fallen firefighters throughout the State of Illinois.

According to Buffalo Grove Fire Chief Mike Baker, Hauber deeply believed in the mission of the AFFI Honor Guard, and always made himself available to serve at events that honored fallen comrades.

In 2018, the AFFI Honor Guard presented Kevin with the 2018 Donald J. Bower Commitment to Excellence Award for his dedication and commitment to the Honor Guard.

“Kevin was a caring, loving person who was always happy and never had anything bad to say about anyone, even when he was sick,” said Chief Baker. “He is already missed.”
