Fire department training in Prospect Heights

This from Drew Smith:

May 10, 11, and 12 the Prospect Heights, Mount Prospect, and Wheeling fire departments conducted joint training at Euclid Avenue and Elmhurst Road. The former Social Security office building built in 1996 is being razed to build a Chase Bank. We were able to conduct  roof operations and make several openings.

Fire departments train in vacant house

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.

The Alsip Fire Department along with the Garden Homes Fire Protection District and the Homewood Acres Fire Protection District had a burn down in Alsip, Illinois at 120th St. and Hamlin Ave.
All of the departments performed numerous small training evolutions in the house before having the final burn down. I arrived towards the end and was able to capture the final wrap up of a month long process.

MABAS 21 training

This from Martin Nowak:

On Sunday, MABAS 21 and a few departments outside of Division 21 participated in training in Burbank, IL. I only knew about two locations and took some pictures from the training day. One location was at Reavis High School and another was a short distance away at 7809 S Linder Ave, also in Burbank. By the high school, there was a multiple car accident scene, and at the house on Linder, a garage collapse. Here are some of the photos showing the scenes.
