House fire in Joliet, 6-7-20

This from Jim Skrabel:

Here are a few pictures from a fire on Joliet’s west side this morning (6/7/20). The fire was in the 2100 block of Wesmere Lakes Drive. It appears the fire was in the attached garage and spread to the attic. Engine 9 (using spare 19) Truck 9 (using spare 19 staffed again?) were first due. A total of three lines were used and the roof was opened. Also on scene were Engine 8, Engine 7, Engine 10, Battalion 2, and a few ambulances. Crews did a great job with a quick knock of the fire.

Joliet Fire Department news

Excerpts from wjol.com:

The Joliet Fire Department is receiving $200,000 from the state loan program for new equipment.

The Ambulance Revolving Loan is designed to assist departments or cities in purchasing emergency equipment they may not be able to otherwise afford. It is administered by the Illinois State Fire Marshal and Illinois Finance Authority. Under the ARLP program, units of local government like municipalities, townships, fire departments, fire protection districts and certain categories of not-for-profit organizations can apply for no-interest or low-interest loans of up to $200,000 to spend on equipment. These loans must be repaid in 10 years.

Joliet Fire Department news

Excerpts from the Herald-news.com:

The city of Joliet has increased fees it charges for ambulance services provided by the Joliet Fire Department. The $200 fee increases will have the biggest direct impact on people who live outside Joliet. The city bills Joliet residents for ambulance service but waives any portion of the bill not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance. The waiver does not apply to nonresidents.

The new fees will be $1,800 for Basic Life Support, $1,900 for Advanced Life Support, and $2,000 for Advanced Life Support II. The mileage charge will go up by $3 a mile to $18 a mile. The higher fees are expected to generate an additional $195,000 for the city.

The city will not charge a fee for transport without medical treatment.

The Joliet City Council on Tuesday approved the fee increase. The last fee increase was in 2015. The city also plans to go out for bids on the billing service for ambulance fees. Joliet now uses Andres Medical Billing.
