Mount Prospect Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

Mount Prospect residents can expect smooth sailing over the course of the next few months as construction continues on the two new headquarters for the police and fire departments.

The Mount Prospect Fire Department headquarters building, 111 E. Rand Road, is still in its early construction stages, but is already slightly under budget. Fire Chief Brian Lambel said that some of the original walls in the building were suspected to have had asbestos however the walls were tested and came back negative, which brought costs down slightly. Currently, the inside of the building has been torn out and steel studs are in place. The steel framing inside has been painted and the roof is complete.

The the fire department broke ground on April 4 and the station is on track to be completed and open by April 2020.

There is a feature on the village’s website for people to watch the progress of both of the buildings. Cameras surveying the site capture still photos every 15 minutes.

House fire in Mt Prospect, 6-18-19

Mount Prospect firefighters were called to 1418 E. Green Lane Tuesday afternoon (6/18/19) for fire in a single-family house. Fire appeared to burn in the attic and firefighters were evacuated from the house just before the second floor ceiling collapsed. Fire vented through the roof and companies took a defensive posture. The Code 3 was elevated to a Code 4 upon the arrival of the initial units and was later upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm. Mount Prospect firefighters were initially assisted by Rolling Meadows, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines, and Arlington Heights. The box alarm brought companies from Palatine, Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, North Maine, Schaumburg, Northbrook, and Hoffman Estates.

Mount Prospect Fire Department news

Excerpt from the Journal-Topics.com:

The Mount Prospect Fire Department will be purchasing four automatic chest compression devices and seven thermal imaging cameras in 2019. Trustees approved the equipment upgrade requests 6-0 at the Tuesday, Feb. 19 regular village board meeting.

The fire department settled on the Lucas chest compression system due to their compatibility with Northwest Community Emergency Medical Services. While the total cost of the devices is $51,880, the village will only pay $4,756, due to the Assistance to Firefighters Grant that was awarded to the fire department in 2018. Taking the lowest of three bids the fire department will purchase the Bullard QXT Thermal Imaging Cameras from Dinges Fire Co. at a cost of $53,795.

The cost of the cameras came in just under the Capital Improvement Plan budget of $54,000.

Mount Prospect Fire Department news

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

In 2018, Mount Prospect experienced 25 cardiac arrest incidents. Of those, 18 were pronounced dead at the scene, seven were taken to a hospital where six patients recovered and one passed away.

Mount Prospect Fire Chief Brian Lambel presented the PulsePoint app to the village board Committee of the Whole meeting. The app, which has been used in Naperville for the past three years, allows volunteers trained in CPR and/or to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to register for an alert if there is a cardiac arrest event reported nearby.

The 911 system connects with the app and sends an alert to the mobile phones of volunteers who are within a quarter mile of the victim’s location. The app will also advise where the nearest public AED is located. Emphasizing that his investigation and consideration of PulsePoint is in the preliminary stages, Lambel said it will cost $10,000 to implement with an annual subscription fee of either $8,000 or $13,000.

The fire department is part of the Northwest Central Dispatch (NWCD) system which dispatches 11 fire departments. If they will embrace the program, the costs would be shared by all 11 communities.

If Mount Prospect were to join the PulsePoint program alone, the village would bear the entire implementation fee and the annual subscription fee, which would be reduced to $8,000,  the price for communities of under 300,000 residents.

Lambel assured the board there would be after-action surveys that go out, “If it doesn’t work or there are problems we either fix the problem or get rid of the app.”

“3,300 communities in 42 states already have PulsePoint,” Lambel said. Rapid City, SD, is a town slightly larger than Mount Prospect and is reporting that 85% of cardiac incidents are getting early CPR with a reported 45% survival rate.

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

As work on Mount Prospect’s new fire station shifts from design to construction, the cost of building the headquarters at 111 E. Rand Road may be exceeding early estimates. Although a final construction budget isn’t expected until March, initial forecasts are putting the project about $433,000 over budget.

A series of cuts have been suggested that would not affect operations to bring costs back within budget. They include reducing the number of sound control panels in the apparatus bay; reducing the radiant heat in the slabs both inside and outside the building; reducing the amount of ceramic wall tile in the bathrooms; relying on diesel rather than natural gas for its generator; and installing one monument sign, located at the Rand Road entrance, instead of two.

The construction documents are expected to be complete by Feb. 19. Public bids are expected by March 12, with a final budget that month. Construction is slated to start in April and finish by April 2020.
