New squad for Hoffman Estates (more)

more on the New squad for Hoffman Estates

From the Maintainer Custom Bodies Facebook page:

Congratulations to Hoffman Estates Fire Department on their new MCB paramedic squad unit, which recently headed to Illinois! This 12′ all-aluminum body is mounted on a Chevy MD Diesel 4×4 chassis. It is packed with custom storage! Federal Signal added some cool lighting & sirens, as we were hoping to show this unit off at FDIC. Since we now can’t meet in person, check out this brief video instead

This from Larry Shapiro:

I stopped by Hoffman Estates Station 22 and grabbed some photos of Squad 22. Additionally, I was told that their minimum staffing is 23 which includes five at the other three stations, each of which have an engine and ambulance. Station 22 has a BC, two on the truck, two on the squad, and three on the engine. If they’re at full staffing then the ambulance at 22 is staffed. Otherwise there are only staffed ambulances at the other three stations.

Hoffman Estates Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Hoffman Estates firefighters called to the scene of a fire in the 700 block of Olive Street shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday night. They arrived to find a detached two-car garage fully in flames. There was no one in the garage and everyone who lived at the home was accounted for. The garage was a total loss, and there was minor damage to a neighbor’s home and garage siding.

A firefighter was injured and treated at a hospital before being released. No residents were injured and the cause remains under investigation. The initial loss estimate to the structure and its contents is $60,000.

Hoffman Estates responded with 23 firefighters, along with the fire chief and two deputy chiefs. Mutual aid companies from the Barrington-Countryside, Elgin, Rolling Meadows and Bartlett fire departments assisted with station coverage or by responding to other calls within the Village. The Streamwood Fire Department also responded to the scene to provide a rapid intervention team.
