Box Alarm fire in North Riverside, 4-28-18

This from Jeff Braun, Jr.

Here are some photos of the Box Alarm fire in North Riverside (4/28/18). Initial calls came in for a fire alarm at the Big Corner Tavern (8405 Cermak Rd.) Engine 808 arrived on scene and reported a 2-story, mixed occupancy with heavy smoke and fire from the second floor. They immediately requested the box alarm assignment. Truck 904 set their aerial up to the roof in the alpha sector, while Berwyn Chief 900 assumed command of the scene. Forest Park Engine 401 was setup in the rear of the building and Broadview Engine 7 tapped the hydrant on the corner of 2nd and Cermak. Crews from North Riverside, Berwyn, Broadview, Forest Park, Lyons, Riverside, Oak Park, LaGrange Park, Stickney, and Cicero were on scene, and River Forest was due on the COQ. Companies were in the process of overhaul on my arrival. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)

Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-5-17 (part 1)

This from Jeff Braun Jr.;

Here are some photos from the Box Alarm in Cicero at 5939 W. Roosevelt Rd. (10/5/17). Calls initially came at Approx. 2300 Hours, and Chicago responded first. After they arrived on scene, they realized it was Cicero’s fire, but they were able to stay on scene and assist since it was a large commercial structure (even though they are not due on the Box Alarm for Cicero). Units from Cicero, Berwyn, Chicago, North Riverside, Oak Park, Forest Park, Stickney, Lyons, and Bedford Park were on scene. Thanks. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)

As seen around … Berwyn

This from Jeff Braun, Jr:

Here are some photos of an E-One Demo Quint (2017 E-One Cyclone 100′ RM Single Axle Quint) visiting the Berwyn Fire Department, this rig was brought to the fire station due to Berwyn’s interest in buying a new truck company to replace the current Seagrave. The department is leaning towards Pierce for the new truck, but still wanted to view all of their options. Thanks -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)
