Streamwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Streamwood officials may soon undertake a plan to replace the village’s 47-year-old Fire Station 1 and similarly outdated public works headquarters with new facilities by spring 2021. The need to replace these buildings was identified by a comprehensive study of all the village’s infrastructure a few years ago. Both projects are planned to be done simultaneously and funded by an estimated $20 million bond issue, which the village board might authorize near the end of the year. Because the village will pay off its existing debt this fall from the police station that opened in 2007, the net impact on taxpayers from the new bonds is expected to be nothing.

The new bonds are expected to be paid off in 20 years.

The current Fire Station 1 at 1204 S. Park Ave. is planned to be demolished and replaced by the new, larger building on the same site. It will also become the new location for the fire department’s administrative offices currently housed at Station 3.

All three fire stations have inadequate space for storage and the decontamination of equipment, but additional space is expected to be made at the other two stations that opened in 1992 and 2002 by relocating some of their operations to the new station.

Like many newer fire stations, Streamwood’s proposed facility is designed with individual bedrooms and bathrooms, which in part help adapt to the changing percentages of male and female firefighters.

The short-term impact of housing personnel and equipment in two stations instead of three is expected to be challenging but manageable. Another unavoidable impact will be to the response times in the area primarily served by Station 1, but Streamwood’s other stations will be closer to that area than the next nearest fire station in Bartlett.

Streamwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from theabc7chicago.com:

Streamwood firefighters responded to a home on Shagbark Lane around 4 p.m. Monday afternoon where they found windows blown out and a fire in the basement.

A heating and air conditioning technician had been working on one unit of the three-unit townhouse, and sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Fire officials said their investigation found the HVAC contractor was outside the building, cutting a hole in the wall, when he hit a natural gas pipe causing a leak and then the explosion. The contractor was hit by flying glass and taken to St. Alexius Hospital where he was treated and released.

The explosion was ruled accidental.
