Working fire in Chicago, 7-24-17

9737 Farragut. This is I believe technically Chicago, but Rosemont arrived initially. Seemed to be an auto fire inside a repair business. Chicago units were initially returned but then responded back to the scene.

Rosemont Public Safety Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Donald E. Stephens II, who served the village of Rosemont for more than 43 years, including as its public safety superintendent, died Saturday morning at the age of 63, after a lengthy illness.

Stephens, son of founding Rosemont Mayor Donald E. Stephens, began working for the village in 1971, and was instrumental in the opening of the Rosemont Horizon, now known as the Allstate Arena, as well as the village’s convention center and other municipal buildings and projects. Besides serving as public safety superintendent, he had a short stint as deputy mayor in the late 1980s under his father.

Stephens received the Rosemont Public Safety Department’s Life Saving Medal and Medal of Merit in 1979. He also was one of the charter members of the department’s K9 unit and served as a police dog handler for several years.

The third superintendent of public safety in the village’s history, Stephens retired in 2014, but remained active within the department as the chairman of the Police and Fire Commission.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy, son — and successor as superintendent — Donald E. Stephens III, son, Christopher, and daughter, Brittany. He is also survived by four grandchildren, his mother, two brothers and one sister. Village of Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens is his younger brother.

Services will be held Tuesday morning at Our Lady of Hope Church in Rosemont. Time is not yet determined.

thanks Dan

Radio traffic from overturned tanker near Rosemont, 5/31/15

This from Steve Redick:

This occurred after midnight on the morning of May 31, on EB 190 at the 294 interchange. A tanker truck overturned and was really rolling, sounds like due to construction.  No one could get near it. I think they tried to hit it from a school in the gated area of Rosemont at 6101 Ruby. I listened to this but did not really get the impression this was a big deal. Even if I went I don’t imagine I could have gotten anywhere near this. Anyway here is the radio traffic.

Steve
