Mount Prospect Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from the journaltopics.com:

Mount Prospect’s new Fire Station 13 on Rand Road is expected to begin operations April 15, but with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it is unknown if that date will remain on track. The goal is for the current headquarters to close April 14 and open the next morning in its new home on Rand Road just south of Kensington Road. The department is already in the process of moving some larger items to the new headquarters.

Because of the ongoing coronavirus, some fire department staff is working from home, while other administrators are split between headquarters and the village’s Emergency Operations Center. Since the pandemic really took hold locally starting the week of March 9, the department’s call volume is down to an average of 3-5 calls per day — well below the average of approximately 20 daily.

Huntley Fire Protection District news (more)

Excerpts from the NWHerald.com:

The Huntley Fire Protection District’s fifth fire station on the southeast corner of Jim Dhamer Drive and Hennig Road is expected to be operational by April 13. The district had planned a grand opening event the same day but, because of the growing threat of the coronavirus, public entry will be postponed to a later date. There are no plans to hire new staff but the district has enough staff to effectively operate all stations.

The district is also awaiting the completion of about a 12,000 square foot expansion and renovation to its existing facility at 11118 Main St. The additions to the East Main Street location will make it a two-story building with a training room, office space, and upstairs living quarters. It also was designed to reduce firefighters’ exposure to carcinogenic materials after responding to a hazardous incident.

This renovation will be finished in July and it is estimated that crews would be fully moved into the building by Sept. 1.

The district’s current headquarters and Station 1 at 11808 Coral St. will be sold once the renovations are finished. Neither project required the passage of a referendum to fund. About $14 million was saved in the past decade for various expansion projects to compensate for projected growth in Huntley’s population.

Cicero Fire Department history – part 2

More Cicero Fire Department history from the files of Joseph Salerno:

Here are a few more. We grew up in the houses. Picture is of me at 6 months (1970) on the hook and ladder. Good memories ! The newspaper clipping of the smashed truck was the truck that my grandfather got thrown off of after getting hit on the way to a call- I think it was a Seagrave.
