Homewood Fire Department news

Excerpts from ABC7Chicago.com:

A man was found dead in a burning vehicle Monday afternoon in a park in south suburban Homewood.

Police and firefighters responded about 2:15 p.m. to a report of a vehicle on fire in Patriots Park in the 1300-block of West 187th Street. When crews arrived, the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames.

Once the blaze was extinguished, authorities discovered what appeared to be a human body in the vehicle. The body was identified as that of 18-year-old Hunter S. Craig of the 2100-block of Vardon Lane in Flossmoor, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy to determine the cause and manner of his death was scheduled for Tuesday.

The Homewood Police Department Criminal Investigation Unit is investigating, along with the Illinois State Police Division of Forensic Services and the medical examiner’s office.

Homewood FD receives federal grant

This from durbin.senate.gov:

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin announced today (July 2, 2014) that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has made a $1,795,860 investment in the Homewood Fire Department in Homewood, Illinois. Today’s funding will allow 18 fire departments throughout the south suburbs to buy portable radios, which will improve interoperability among departments in the area when fire fighters respond to fires, severe weather, and other emergencies.  Homewood applied for the grant on behalf of the region’s joint dispatch center.

“We must ensure our nation’s fire fighters and first-responders are equipped with the best, most up-to-date tools to do their jobs effectively. Today’s grants will help meet that goal.”          

The funding is provided through the DHS’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program which seeks to strengthen the Nation’s overall level of preparedness and ability to respond to fire and fire related hazards. Since 2001, the AFG has provided approximately $5.25 billion in federal funding to first-responder organizations across the country to help purchase response equipment, personal protective equipment, training, and vehicles. The AFG is in the process of awarding approximately $320.9 million in competitive grants to fire departments and non-affiliated EMS organizations from Fiscal Year 2013 AFG funding.
