Box Alarm fire and EMS Box Alarm in Naperville, 8-26-18

This from Eric Haak:

Naperville had a Box Alarm with an EMS Box Sunday morning (8/26). The fire was out long before I could arrive. I’ve provided two images of what they had that were taken from a distance as I could not get any closer. Also pictured are 3 Naperville engines, Naperville Truck 1, an Oswego engine, a Lisle Woodridge engine and the Plainfield tower ladder.

Naperville Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Todd Overmyer, a Naperville Fire Department paramedic, knew he had to stop when he saw a motorcyclist just involved in an accident laying on the pavement, unconscious and struggling to breathe. His actions were enough to have possibly saved the life of Steve Iovinelli, the retired Franklin Park fire chief. Overmyer opened an airway that allowed Iovinelli to breathe while waiting for help to arrive. He then checked for injuries, noting possible broken wrists, a pelvis fracture, and head injuries which he conveyed to Troy Fire Protection District paramedics. Throughout the ordeal, Iovinelli remained unconscious.

At Tuesday’s Naperville City Council meeting, Overmyer was presented with Naperville Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis’ Life Saving Award.

Naperville Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

The Naperville Fire Department and city staff are exploring the possible consolidation of some of the city’s 10 fire stations, Mayor Steve Chirico said Monday.

“Safety is the number one concern, of course, but we recognize Naperville has reached build out,” Chirico said. “So we need to ask the question if our stations are in the best locations, or if reconfiguring them could provide better service.”

Naperville Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis brought the consolidation idea up to the city manager City Manager Doug Krieger about a year ago, Krieger said Tuesday.

As Naperville has grown and changed over the years, the city has added fire stations, he said.

“If we were to do it all over again, the locations and number of stations might be different, so since we’ve kind of hit our build out, we thought that now would be a good time to look at coverage,” Krieger said. “Obviously, the most important component of coverage is response time. And another number of other factors come into play.”

Equalizing the workload across the city’s 10 fire stations also helps coverage, Krieger said.

Naperville’s current call to arrival time is six minutes 85.6 percent of the time. It’s unclear if potential station consolidation would affect response times.

“Currently we’re providing a very high service level,” Krieger said. “I would expect when things are all said and done, we’ll continue to supply a very high service level.”

“The goal is really to continue to provide a great service level and response time while minimizing cost. That’s really true to all departments in the city,” Krieger said.

The Naperville Fire Department employs 193 sworn, full-time, professional firefighters. Any reductions in staff to accompany consolidation would be done through attrition and natural retirements.

The staff has not come to any conclusions yet but there are plans on making a consolidation recommendation to the Naperville City Council this year.

Naperville Station 2 at 601 E. Bailey Road is the oldest station. Station 4 at 1971 Brookdale Road is also a training facility, and Station 7 at 1380 Aurora Ave. houses the department’s administrators.
