Elmhurst Fire Department news

Excerpts from mysuburbanlife.com:

Joseph D. Schenk, 31, of the 1500 block of Jill Court, was charged with aggravated battery, possession of a controlled substance and obstructing a peace officer, and Mayrel J. Gamez, 25, of the 1500 block of Jill Court, was charged with obstructing a peace officer and criminal trespass to motor vehicle following the incident that reportedly occurred about 6:21 p.m. July 31 at Lake Street and Church Road in Elmhurst.

Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Mike McLean said the two reportedly stopped the vehicle they were in while they were in traffic on Lake Street, and Elmhurst Fire Department personnel pulled up behind them in a department vehicle. The personnel inquired as to the welfare of Schenk and Gamez, anticipating their vehicle had broken down.

McLean said Schenk and Gamez were acting erratically, and Gamez allegedly opened the door of the fire department vehicle. A firefighter reportedly asked the woman to exit the vehicle, and Gamez allegedly refused to do so. The firefighter then reportedly pulled her out of the vehicle. Schenk then allegedly shoved the firefighter, and Elmhurst police responded to the scene and took Schenk and Gamez into custody. The pair were then transported to the hospital for treatment.

Gamez was charged with obstruction of justice because she allegedly did not comply with police officers’ orders during the arrest. The firefighter did not sustain injuries.

This was taken from their Facebook page. This was to replace squad one so I assume they’re running a new engine one as a squad?

Elmhurst Fire Department news

Excerpts from mysuburbanlife.com:

Elmhurst Hospital has awarded its 2017 Emergency Medical Services Run of the Year award to members of the Elmhurst Fire Department.

Paramedics Danielle Fernandez and Sarah Hand and firefighters Patrick Evoy, Gary Klecka, Tim Lisowski, and Lt. Jeff Hayes were recognized for their care of an 80-year-old man who fell while at church and was unresponsive in May.

When the crew arrived, bystanders were performing CPR, which Hand continued. Fernandez delivered a shock from an AED after which the patient was breathing and had a pulse. The paramedics provided additional treatment in the ambulance while on the way to Elmhurst Hospital Emergency Department. The patient was admitted to Elmhurst Hospital and released a few days later.

The Run of the Year recipients were honored at Elmhurst Hospital’s fifth annual Emergency Medical Services Recognition Dinner on Oct. 26 at Pinstripes in Oak Brook.

Other area emergency medical services personnel and police officers were honored at the event, which caps off the yearlong Run of the Month program in which area first responders firefighters and MES personnel are recognized for exceptional care with a breakfast at their station.

Elmhurst Hospital has been honoring area emergency medical services providers with Run of the Month since 2012.

Teams are selected based on excellent communication from the field, excellent work in gathering information, clear and thorough documentation, superior clinical assessment skills, heroic behavior in the field, and superior partnership and teamwork with Elmhurst Hospital.
