Cary Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the northwestherald.com:

A wealthy couple who rescinded a $60,000 donation offer to the village of Cary after trustees refused to accept the gift without knowing their identities has taken their money elsewhere. The couple plans to donate $35,000 to the Cary Fire Protection District to buy a new defibrillator.

After meeting resistance in an 11th-hour attempt to work with The Community Foundation for McHenry County to reveal their identities to a divided village board in exchange for a yes vote supporting the donation, the donors walked away.

The couple continued working with the Community Foundation for McHenry County and decided to make a donation to the fire district, which had planned to pay for the defibrillator before the donors approached with an offer in October.

Although a check has not been delivered to the fire protection district, the $35,000 donation fell in line with the couple’s philanthropic philosophy.

Excerpts from the NorthwestHerald.com:

Three Cary firefighters injured during a house fire Friday have been released from the hospital, and two of them have returned to work.

The Cary Fire Protection District was called about 8:27 p.m. to a fire at 206 Hickory Nut Grove Lane, where one firefighter fell from the first floor into the basement of the home, one was injured trying to help the firefighter who fell, and another firefighter received an electrical shock.

The firefighter who fell through the floor was taken to Advocate Good Shepard Hospital in Barrington and was released, but has not returned to work. The other two firefighters were taken to the same hospital and later released.

Fire Chief Jeffrey Macko said that to the best of his knowledge, the firefighters followed protocol during the fire, including sounding the floor to determine its stability. The department’s safety committee is running an internal safety review.

Because of the injuries, the Illinois State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.

Cary Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the NWHerald.com:

For more than 30 years, Cary Fire Protection District Capt. Dennis Krenz has taught Cary-Grove High School sophomores a skill he hopes they’ll never need to use – CPR.

Schools in Illinois weren’t required to provide students with a general knowledge of how to perform CPR until 2014, but Krenz had been volunteering his time to teach students long before then.

It’s estimated Krenz has taught more than 14,000 students, and because of his work, he is one of six people in the state to receive the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Life Safety Award this year.

Sophomores at Cary-Grove High School learn CPR from their health teachers before being taught and tested for a day by Krenz and other volunteers from the fire district.

Krenz also helped the school receive grants to buy its own mannequins and automated external defibrillators to use for practice.

Aside from teaching CPR, Krenz also tells stories from calls the department has received, and covers topics including drug use and wearing a seatbelt, he said.

The Cary Fire Protection District offers CPR classes from 7 to 10 p.m. the first Wednesday of every month. For information, visit www.caryfire.com.

thanks Dan
