Still and Box Alarm in Chicago, 10-8-18

This from Dan McInerney:

I was downtown for the marathon, when a Still and Box alarm and EMS Plan 1 came in just after 1pm for the subway fire on the CTA Red line at 230 S. State St. E1 and AT1 went down to check and found nothing; the radio traffic indicated there was a malfunction with one of the el cars, but no smoke/fire. Due to the marathon taking place, there was a significant police response along with the usual compliment of fire apparatus.

Fire Muster and Flea Market in Chicago (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Had a great day Saturday attending the annual Fire Buffs of Illinois/ 5-11 Club muster. Attendance seemed down this year and the amount of rigs seemed very low compared to previous years but nonetheless it was a great and fun day. Here is a sampling of some of the “hardware” I was able to see. Great to see the Skokie/Engine 87 Club Mack again this year after a lengthy absence. All the images and video can be seen on my site

Working fire in Chicago, 6-9-17

This from Drew Gresik:

The 18th Battalion battled a working fire in a red-X building at 3849 on Flournoy. Chicago Police helicopter ‘PH1’ called it in on the Zone and reported that there was a house on fire and it was really cooking. Engine 95 deck-gunned it on arrival as they had heavy fire showing from the 2, and then companies led out (2) 2.5” lines while performing an exterior attack. A third line was led out as Squad 1’s Snorkel was set up and flowing water in the vacant lot on Side D.

Chicago orders new squads (more)

This from Steve Redick:

I had a great opportunity to attend a media event held by the Chicago FD Tuesday. All of the not yet in service 2-piece squad companies (1,2,5,7) were brought to Northerly Island (Many will remember this as Meigs Field) for an unveiling and photo shoot. A total of 8 units altogether were positioned for a once in a generation group photo with views of the skyline in the background. After the group shot we had the chance to shoot each individual rig as well. The lone lime green/yellow units are assigned to Squad 7 at O’Hare Field. I made several panorama images which are comprised of 6 or 7 large resolution shots. When combined they yield a large highly detailed image. The small versions I am sending do not truly showcase these images … to see a good full size view check out my website:
