Hoffman Estates Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Hoffman Estates Fire Chief Jeffrey Jorian will retire this month after 35 years with the village.

Jorian joined the Hoffman Estates Fire Department as a firefighter in September 1982 and moved steadily through the ranks over the years. He was sworn in as fire chief in September 2013.

Among Jorian’s accomplishments under his various ranks was managing the department’s transition to Northwest Central Dispatch, leading the Dive Rescue Team, serving as the department’s first full-time training officer, and coordinating the first multiagency training among Hoffman Estates, Streamwood, Schaumburg, and Palatine.

Deputy Chief Patrick Fortunato will be the acting chief when Jorian retires on Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Hoffman Estates Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Malgorzata Rostecka, a nurse assistant ,who lives near the apartments in the 2000 block of Hassell Road said she and her 8-year-old daughter were out for a walk when they smelled smoke. She sent her daughter to call 911 and saw beyond an open door a man leaning against a wall in his burning apartment.

She told the man to leave the building, but he couldn’t move. She said the man was having difficulty breathing, couldn’t walk and already had burns on his face and hands. She could recognize that the skin was peeling from his mouth and nose. She helped him out of the burning apartment, as he leaned on her heavily.

Rostecka heard what she described as an explosion in the living room area just as she was getting the man out the door. Hoffman Estates Fire Chief Jeff Jorian said he doesn’t know exactly what she heard but that it’s common for aerosol cans to explode in such heat.

Firefighters were called to the blaze at the two-story building of the Barrington Lakes Apartments about 7:15 p.m. Smoke and flames were blowing out of the first-floor apartment unit, where investigators believe a fire started in the kitchen. The man, who had burns on his face and hands, was transported to St. Alexius Medical Center and later transferred to Loyola.

Hoffman Estates firefighters said the initial damage estimate is $250,000. The building was substantially damaged and was equipped with an automatic fire alarm which activated, but not a sprinkler system. The cause of the fire has not been determined.

Chief Jorian said though this event ended well, it can be dangerous to enter a burning building, and firefighters and paramedics would prefer to have one victim, not two.

Hoffman Estates Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Hoffman Estates Firefighter Evan VonQualen was commended by Fire Chief Jeff Jorian and the village board this week for helping save the life of an Elgin resident while driving to work in Hoffman Estates.

VonQualen recounted that he just happened to look to his left during his morning commute Dec. 11 to see a house that was clearly in the early stages of a fire.

He pulled over and contacted the homeowner to get him out of the house. The man was concerned for the lives of his cats and attempted to re-enter the home to search for them. VonQualen persuaded the man that the cats would be all right and got him safely away from the burning structure.

Though human life was the immediate concern, the firefighters rescued the cats as well.

VonQualen will be honored again, in Elgin, at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at The Centre of Elgin, 100 Symphony Way.

thanks Dan
