Box Alarm in LaGrange Park 7-24-12

This from Josh Boyajian:

LaGrange Park had a box alarm this afternoon, it looked like they had a power line fall and caught a house and a garage across the street from each other on fire. There was mutual aid from all over including a new battalion buggy from Tri-State and Bellwood’s new tower ladder. I took a few pictures but all the fire was knocked.

The LaGange Patch wrote:

The La Grange Park Fire Department was called out at 3:24 p.m. July 24 to a house fire at 1401 Newbury. The fire was out within 25 minutes

Departments from La Grange; Oak Brook, North Riverside; Pleasantview; Bellwood; Hinsdale; and Westmont were in the scene.

Fire departments discuss combining services

Dennis McGuire, Jr. found an article discussing a possible merger of sorts between three suburban fire and police departments.

La Grange officials voiced unanimous support to pursue a program of shared services with Western Springs and LaGrange Park in the first of three presentations Sept. 26 on the concept.

The study, sponsored by the Metropolitan Mayors and Managers Caucus and funded in part by a grant, was designed to examine similarities between the three villages regarding community characteristics and public safety operations.

The three towns have very similar populations, number of square miles and financial resources. Differences lie in emergency services with LaGrange Park and Western Springs employing paid, on-call firefighters and a private paramedic service, compared to La Grange, which has full-time firefighters.

The project also identified opportunities to share public safety services and made seven recommendations in a three-phase approach, beginning with combining emergency dispatch services.

The analysis of calls for emergency services suggests the total call volumes could be met from a single dispatch center with a potential savings of three full-time and four part-time workers. Other communities may be invited to join the system in time.

Departments could also share a record and reporting system.

Fire department trucks could be shared, and police services could be combined with overlapping responsibility between the communities for the supervising shift sergeant. Eventually, policing districts within and between the communities could be consolidated into larger ones.

Brookfield 2-11 on 7-12-11

Drew Gresik took in a MABAS 2nd Alarm this evening in Brookfield and submitted the following images and description.

Fire was reported showing from the garage of a 2-story ordinary home in the 3500 block of Rosemear. The fire soon demolished the garage and spread quickly to the home upgrading the fire to a 2-alarm fire. It was upgraded to a full MABAS Division 10 response, and even became inter-divisional with departments from MABAS Division 11, 20, and 21 responding. There were 4 lines stretched and almost all crews were working.
