Geneva Fire Department news

Excerpts from the KaneCountyChronicle.com:

Geneva firefighters are due to receive 25 new sets of  turnout gear at a cost of more than $50,000. Aldermen voted unanimously to approve the expenditure Jan. 16.

The new gear is replacing out-of-date and worn-out gear for 25 members of the department. Each set costs nearly $2,000, based on the lowest qualified bid from W.S. Darley. Gear includes helmets, gloves, coats, pants, hoods, and boots. Depending on use and wear, some gear has to be retired before the 10-year anniversary date.

The National Fire Protection Association recommends gear be retired after 10 years after the date of manufacture.

Geneva Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

One person was displaced and taken to the hospital Wednesday after a house fire in Geneva.

A neighbor called 911 about 8 p.m. when they saw smoke and flames coming from a home in the 200 block of Kansas Street, Geneva Fire Chief Mike Antenore said.

Firefighters found the homeowner outside the house when they arrived. The homeowner was the only person in the house at the time, and was breathing and conscious while being transported to Delnor Hospital.

Ten fire departments, including St. Charles, Elburn, Batavia, and West Chicago responded to the call.

Technical rescue/recovery in Geneva, 2-3-17

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an investigation into the death of a 47-year-old West Dundee man who was killed Friday while installing a sign on a tower at Geneva Commons.

“A worker was crushed while he was in his aerial lift while he was working on a sign,” said OSHA spokesman Scott Allen. “We do have two OSHA compliance officers at the scene. We’re conducting interviews with potential witnesses, the employer and employees.”

Authorities said Donald J. Tentler, 47, was killed in the accident, which occurred at about 11:48 a.m. Friday. Tentler and another worker were at the top of the bell tower.

Firefighters found Tentler unconscious and unresponsive, and he was later pronounced dead at the scene. The other worker was able to walk down a fire truck ladder, but it took three hours to remove Tentler’s body from the bell tower.

“It seems to be some kind of mechanical malfunction. Whether it was human error or mechanical (failure), I don’t know,” Kane County Coroner Rob Russell said. “The worker was pinned by the lifting device.”

Fire agencies assisting Geneva at the scene included St. Charles, West Chicago, and Batavia.
