Arlington Heights Fire Department news

Excerpts from the Dailyherald.com:

Arlington Heights Fire Chief Ken Koeppen is set to step down next week and take a new job as deputy chief of administration with the Schaumburg Fire Department.

Koeppen joined the Arlington Heights Fire Department in February 1980 as a firefighter, and worked his way up to become a lieutenant in 1995, then battalion chief in 1998, deputy chief in 2005, and chief in 2014. He is Arlington Heights’ fifth chief since the department changed from a volunteer to a full-time paid department in 1958.

His retirement takes effect Thursday, Nov. 15. Deputy Chief Andrew Larson was appointed as acting fire chief, overseeing a department of 110 employees and four divisions. Officials say they will conduct a search for a permanent successor by evaluating both internal and external candidates.

Schaumburg Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

The Schaumburg Fire Department has received Accredited Agency status with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) to become one of about 240 agencies in the nation to achieve the elite distinction.

Accreditation is an assessment process that uses benchmarks to measure the delivery of fire and emergency services with the ultimate goal of providing continuous quality improvement and improved service to the community. Schaumburg joins about 10 other agencies in Illinois that have received accreditation status.

CFAI is dedicated to assisting fire and emergency service agencies throughout the world in achieving excellence through self-assessment and accreditation. The CFAI process is voluntary and provides an agency with an improvement model to assess its service delivery and performance internally, after which it works with a team of peers from other agencies to evaluate its completed self-assessment. Schaumburg’s process toward accreditation began in the summer of 2014 under former Fire Chief Dave Schumann with the final components completed in December of 2017. 

Agencies become accredited after peer review of their accreditation documents, completion of an onsite assessment, and participation in a public hearing, which occurred March 13, before the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. Schaumburg’s accreditation is valid for five years.

The Schaumburg Fire Department joins the Schaumburg Police Department and the Engineering & Public Works Department which have already received accredited. 

The Schaumburg Fire Department services a daytime population of 150,000. Operating from five fire stations, 120 shift personnel respond to more than 9,100 calls a year.
