New rigs respond to help Central Stickney

Last night the Central Stickney Fire Protection District responded to a structure fire at Frankie and Johnnie’s Roadhouse located at 5009 S. Central Avenue. First arriving companies were met with heavy fire at the rear of the building and requested a box alarm for additional companies. A successful attack kept the bulk of the fire at the rear of the building and prevented it from extending to an exposure less than fifteen feet away.

Among the departments that responded were Roberts Park with their new Pierce Arrow XT aluminum ladder and Bedford Park with their new Pierce Impel pumper. Other units on the scene included engines from Summit, McCook, Lyons, and Bridgeview; squads from Burbank and Oak Lawn; trucks from Bedford Park and Stickney; medic units from Bedford Park and Summit.

Roberts Park has been added to the site

Roberts Park Fire Protection District patchAnother department has been added to Division 21. Thanks to Bill Friedrich and Karl Klotz for images representing the Roberts Park Fire Protection District which serves Hickory Hills and Justice. They run out of two stations with 17 career personnel and 60 part-time personnel. Most of the fire suppression apparatus is Pierce with one engine built by Crimson. Of interest is Ladder 31, a 2008 Pierce Arrow XT 100′ rear mount aerial with no pump and no water tank. This is one of the units that has been featured as the apparatus on the TV show “Rescue Me.”
