Loves Park Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from wifr.com:

With less than two years in the role, Loves Park Fire Chief Jerry Wiltfang is proud of the progress his team has made. In just 14 months, this formerly all-volunteer crew now has a full-time staff to better serve their community in a fraction of the time. To address the rapid growth, the Loves Park City Council approved a resolution that provides funding for two new engines and updated equipment.

“Our response times were getting close to 20 minutes before we were here, before we had our full time crew, and now we’re looking to average around 6 minutes, by the time the tone goes off, until we’re at a person’s house is about 6 minutes. It’s just going to bring more safety to the public and hopefully all around Loves Park,” said Captain Adam Kuehl.

thanks Dennis

This from Larry Shapiro:

I was in Elk Grove Village on Wednesday and stopped by the two new fire stations to grab some photos. The landscaping was just beginning at Station 10, but Station 8 was largely completed in the front. All of the rear bay doors have a second set of screen doors that run on the same track as the solid overhead doors. One can be seen in the photo. This allows a breeze into the station while still securing the station from intruders and debris blown around by the wind.

Christopher Fire Department LODD, 5-5-19 (more)

Excerpts from wsiltv.com:

Investigators have been on the scene since the fire Sunday morning trying in Christopher to figure out what caused the blaze where 24-year-old Firefighter Kody Vanfossan died while fighting a the fire. They say the building was vacant at the time the fire started.

Christopher Fire Chief Ron Learned said more than 17 fire departments responded to the fire inside the old office furniture store on the corner of Market and Emma Street. An hour into the call, a firefighter called out Mayday after finding someone down inside the fire scene.  Shortly thereafter, firefighters found Vanfossan’s dad, a more than 10-year veteran with the Christopher Fire Department, but they were not able to recover Kody until later. Vanfossan was on the second floor of the building when the Mayday call was issued. 

While Christopher firefighters mourn the loss of their brother, area firefighters are manning the fire station. 

Vanfossan’s visitation will be held Thursday, May 9 from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Christopher High School Gym with a Firefighter Walk-through set for 7:30 p.m. A Visitation will also be on Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. with a Firefighter Walk-through at 10:45 a.m.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Friday at the high school with burial to follow at St. Andrews Catholic Cemetery in Christopher.
