Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from hoiabc.com:

The Peoria Fire Department was called about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday to a three-vehicle collision on NE Randolph and Hamilton Boulevard in which one of the cars rolled on its side. An engine on its way to the crash scene was hit by another vehicle at Columbia Terrace and North Street.

Four of the seven people injured in the initial collision were taken to a local hospital. They were expected to be treated and released. Three others declined hospital treatment.

No one was hurt in the second crash, including the three firefighters. Police ticketed the other driver. The engine had damage to the rear axle and bumper, and will be repaired.

Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from hoiabc.com:

An explosion at the BioUrja Renewables grain facility in May led to long days and long nights for Peoria Firefighters for over a week after. BioUrja Renewables plans to donate five proximity firefighting suits to the hazardous incident response team for all their effort.

These suits typically cost about $2,000 a piece and can withstand fires as hot as 2,000 degrees.

Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from fireapparatusmagazine.com:

The Peoria City Council approved $3.2 million for new apparatus, expecting to get the new rigs in 2024.

Interim Fire Chief Shawn Sollberger said the wait times for apparatus can be up to 27 months because of supply chain issues. He told the council that by making a decision and commitment to buy the apparatus now, they will have time to raise and appropriate the funds by the time the apparatus is delivered.

The apparatus that might be replaced include two aerials from 2001 and one from 1994.

Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from hoiabc.com:

Peoria firefighters celebrated the history and memories within the oldest fire station in the River City. It opened in 1952 and is expected to close next month.

“If you wanted to prove yourself as a firefighter, you came to Station 4,” said Interim Chief Shawn Sollberger.

The same message spread through all the firefighters who gathered Thursday night. They said their bittersweet goodbyes to the original Station 4. Dozens of retirees, current firefighters and community members laughed as they shared stories from the city’s oldest station.

Although, the memories made on Jefferson Avenue will come to an end, Station 4?s legacy will continue a few miles away on Western Avenue. Station 4 will close when the new building is complete.

The city does not have plans yet for what will be done with the building on Jefferson Avenue, but there are hopes to make it some type of memorial.

After nearly three decades with the Peoria Fire Department, Chief Jim Bachman will be retiring on March 18. He began his career with the Peoria Fire Department in May 1994, and was named chief in May 2021 after previous Chief Tony Ardis retired after 27 years with the department.

Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from hoiabc.com:

In March, construction will be completed for Peoria’s new Fire Station 4 located at Western and Howet. It’s a project three years in the making, and will honor the River City’s first black fireman. The Edward B. Gaines Fire Station 4 will give the area a huge boost helping an area that badly needs it.

The name change remembers a man who broke barriers. The new building cost around $3 million, split between city and state funds. It will house Truck 4 and Engine 4.

The current Station 4 on Southwest Jefferson is the oldest in the city and the building’s future is unclear.

 Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from CentralIllinoisproud.com:

For four days this week, the Peoria Fire Department said it’ll temporarily suspend service to Engine Company 2, which is out of Station #8 located on Hurlburt Street because staff have been affected by COVID-19, leaving the station empty-handed.

The temporary suspension runs from Dec. 22-25, but Battalion Chief Jim Bachman said there are no guarantees that the time frame will not expand. Engine Company 2 returned to service on Nov. 1 after the remainder of the existing operational budget for 2021 showed enough funds to bring the engine back into service. Bachman is confident that no matter what happens, the engine will be recommissioned in 2022.

Despite continuously monitoring their operational finances to stay within budget, Fire Administration said there were some unexpected expenses.

Residents will continue to receive service from the 11 fire stations within city limits.

“Regardless of how many people live in that area, I’m confident that the fire department can make whatever adjustments they have to so that when backups from other stations are needed, they are in a position to make those things happen in a timely manner,” said Jackson.
