Oak Brook Fire Department news

This from Martin Nowak:

Today is the wake for FF/PM Tommy Sinclair from Oak Brook Fire Department. He previously served with Robert’s Park. 

The wake is across the street from Station 2. They will have the light tower set up in an area for over flow cars to park. 
I had the opportunity to meet Tommy during my ride time years back. He was outstanding, made me feel welcomed and even taught me new things. God bless and rest easy Tommy.; #wake; #TommySinclair; #MartinNowak; #OakBrookFD; #firestation; #RobertsParkFPD;

MVA with extrication on I294, 4-28-21

From the Associated Firefighters of Oak Brook IAFF Local 4646 Facebook page:

This evening Oak Brook Firefighters responded to a motor vehicle accident that involved a prolonged extrication. Due to recent cuts in manpower, Oak Brook only had 2 firefighters available to man our squad and 1 firefighter available in a suv to handle this technical extrication. This incident required assistance from Berkley, Hillside, Oakbrook Terrace and York Center. The patient was extricated and transported to Loyola Hospital via helicopter.

Oak Brook Firefighters are currently working a vehicle accident with extrication on SB I294 in the area of 22nd St. Please use caution in the area.

Oak Brook Fire Department news (more)

From Associated Firefighters of Oak Brook IAFF Local 4646:

At 7:30 this morning fire department staffing has been reduced by 27% a day. These decisions were made based on the agenda of a few of the current Oak Brook Trustees and certainly not with the safety of the residents and visitors of Oak Brook in mind. As always, we will do everything we can to respond to and handle your emergencies. We just want to make everyone aware that we are no longer able to staff the same amount of ambulances and fire equipment today that we could staff yesterday. With this change you may be waiting a little longer for us to respond to your emergencies. As a matter of fact, it might not even be us responding at all. You might be waiting for an ambulance or fire engine from a completely different town!

Oak Brook Fire Department reduction in staffing

thanks Tim
