Area fire department receive grants

Excerpts from the journalreview.com:

Calumet City, Flossmoor, Crete Township, and South Holland fire departments have received a combined total of $610,000 in grant money to improve their stations and get equipment that will increase firefighter safety.

The Calumet City Fire Department was awarded a $142,000 grant, which will go toward updating two of its fire station’s ventilation systems to air out toxic vehicle exhaust fumes. The department will also use the funds to buy 15 sets of turnout gear and 38 helmets.

They previously had been awarded multiple grants through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, which provided the department with a mobile training simulator, specialized training props, personal protective equipment and a special response vehicle.

In 2018, the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program made $315 million directly available to fire department, state fire training academies, and emergency medical service organizations to buy equipment, emergency vehicles and fund training.

The Flossmoor Fire Department received $222,345 and will buy emergency breathing equipment, replacing equipment that was nearly 20 years old.

The Crete Township Fire Protection District was awarded $52,380 and plans to install fire station vehicle exhaust systems. South Holland Fire Department was given $193,409 to buy new air packs.

Crete Township FPD has been added to the site

Crete Township Fire Protection District Station

The newest station for Crete Township is at 26730 S. Stony Island Avenue. Bill Friedrich photo

The Crete Township Fire Protection in MABAS Division 27has three stations. They have a variety of engines made my Pierce, E-ONE, Luverne, and Alexis. The ambulances are from Medtec and they also have three tankers (tenders), the newest of which was completed in 2011 by Alexis on a Freightliner M2 chassis.

In 1995, Crete Township was one of several south suburban fire departments to order an engine from Luverne on an HME 1871 chassis. Two of these had the largest extended and raised cabs that were offered; one went to Alsip and the other is still on the roster for Crete Township with a fully enclosed pump operator panel.

The newest unit in the Crete Township fleet is a 3,000-gallon tender built by Alexis on a Freightliner chassis. There is a graphic on the porta-tank cover which illustrates a steamer that was refurbished by Gene Morris of Alexis Fire Equipment.
