Clarendon Hills Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from Fox32chicago.com:

Leaders in Clarendon Hills are looking to share a fire department ladder truck with another community, saving a big chunk of change. 

One village official  says that public safety comes first, but if they can get by with sharing a ladder truck with a neighboring community, then why not save that money?

Some community members are upset at the thought that the Clarendon Hills Fire Department wouldn’t have its own ladder truck, fearing response times would be longer. They have organized, and there is a Change.org petition as well as yard signs being put up.

The issue at hand is the current ladder truck is getting old and needs to be replaced. The cost is well over a million dollars. The village manager says they are still researching their options to replace it or rely on another department when they need the ladder truck.

There is a village board meeting Monday night. The ladder is not on the agenda, but they are expecting some public comment. The village manager says they have a lot more to research before they make a decision.

FromScott Pilafas:

Long time Clarendon Hills Firefighter /Paramedic Bobbie Bowen is retiring. Roberta has worked for several west suburban fire departments, eventually finding a home with Clarendon Hills and working as a patrol officer for the Chicago Police Department. In honor of Roberta, we affixed checkerboard reflective stickers on the front bumper of Medic 86.  Anyone who knows Roberta that I haven’t reach out to, please join us in celebrating her retirement.
