Excerpts from theChicagoTribune.com:
Two Chicago Fire Department employees worked as extras on the “Chicago Fire” TV show when they shouldn’t have been doing so, city Inspector General Joseph Ferguson said Thursday in a report that highlighted several apparent violations by employees working on the NBC show.
In one case, a deputy district chief was on duty while he worked on the hit program … that often uses real firefighters as extras, Ferguson said in his quarterly report. The deputy district chief retired before he could be disciplined, but Ferguson’s report says the city law department sought compensation and received a full payment of $1,634 for the time he was on duty while on the set of the show.
In another case, a firefighter worked on the show while on medical leave and was fired from the Chicago Fire Department.
The watchdog recommended that both the fire department and police department workers appearing on the show fill out their own time sheets from the program, so as not to be accused of moonlighting when they’re supposed to be on duty.
And the inspector general noted that firefighters have been trading work shifts with one another to get time off to work on the TV show, which he said is in violation of the firefighters union contract that prohibits trading shifts for outside employment.
In addition, Ferguson dinged firefighters and paramedics for bringing their own gear to work on the TV show in apparent violation of department rules.

Hello,I follow your website (chicagoareafire.com) on a daily basis and I saw the post about the rig that was purchased from Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus for the show Chicago Fire. While browsing through instagram about a week ago, I came accross the attached pic with what appears to be the same truck, just on it side and marked up for Truck 81. Let me know if you agree or not.Thanks,Eric

The Chicago Fire TV show has been filming an episode which includes a train derailment. This setup was in Union, IL this past week, and ABC13.com has a behind the scenes look at the filming.
Small town, Union, Illinois finds itself in the TV spotlight once again as the Railway Museum fills the need for a train wreck.
NBC’s hit show, Chicago Fire used the museum as a means to stage a train wreck for an upcoming episode.
This episode, airing November 12th is set at a train crash. If the location seems familiar, it should. The Illinois Railway Museum in Union has played host to many television film crews.
“We’re well-known in Illinois in the film industry, the Illinois Film Office, whenever film companies come here to Illinois, if somebody needs trains, they send them our way,” said Nick Kallas. Museum Executive Director Nick Kallas says money made from the filming benefits the museum’s patrons.
Actual Union firefighters, on hand for safety purposes watch with excitement. Firefighter and EMT Jessica Carr says the best part for her, is how realistic the interactions are. “It’s a lot of just how we interact, like, just the relationships between the firefighters and how we work on a major scene accident like this,” said Carr.
