Here are a few pictures of the new E-One for Naperville Engine 3. We are in Hamburg, NY for the final inspection. Final inspection of the new Pierce will be in early May. We will be re-assigning a couple engines and saying goodbye to the Freightliner/E-ONE engines that have been our reserve rigs for many years.

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.

Working fire in Naperville, 3-9-18

From the Naperville Fire Department Facebook page:

Firefighters Battle Structure Fire on 1300 Block of East Chicago Avenue

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — At 12:34 PM on Friday, March 9th, 2018, Naperville’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) received a 911 call from a resident on the 1300 block of East Chicago Rd. reporting a fire on the third floor, possibly in the roof. PSAP immediately dispatched a general alarm for the structure fire which brought a total of 3 engines, 2 ladder trucks, 1 heavy rescue squad, 2 ambulances, 1 incident commander and 1 safety officer to the scene (24 Personnel). The dispatch center also received notification from the alarm company advising a fire within the structure.

Truck 1 arrived on the scene within 3 minutes and identified a three story multi-family occupancy with fire showing from the roof. Truck 1 established incident command and a safety officer was assigned to oversee operations at the incident. A hose line was deployed to the third floor and roof of the structure while a primary search of the building was initiated. A ladder company was assigned to the roof to assist the fire attack crews and stop the progression of fire at the roof level. Due to the size of the structure and location of fire, the alarm was upgraded to a box alarm bringing additional Crews to the scene. The fire attack crew located and extinguished the fire within 30 minutes of arrival. Additional crews assisted with establishing a water supply, removing smoke by ventilating, removing occupants from the building and searching for any hidden fire. Salvage and overhaul activities were conducted to limit further damage to property and contents of the multi-family residential structure.

Additional assistance was provided by The Naperville Police Department, Naperville Electric Department (NED), Naperville Transportation, Engineering and Development group (NED) and NiCor. The building was declared safe for residents to return however one unit was determined to be uninhabitable due to smoke and fire damage. Building management was assisting with the relocation of these individuals.

Naperville fire station coverage was provided by the Warrenville Fire Protection District, Bolingbrook Fire Department, Wheaton Fire Department, Downers Grove Fire Department and the Oswego Fire Protection District.

The Lisle Woodridge Fire Protection District and Downers Grove Fire Department assisted at the scene.

There were no reported injuries to firefighters or civilians.

The cause of the fire was determined to be accidental by the Naperville Fire Investigation Team.
