Countryside FPD 2nd Alarm haz mat box 3-19-14

The Countryside FPD requested a 2nd Alarm Hazardous Materials Box this morning after a truck trailer tipped over in Vernon Hills. The Daily Herald has this information:

A section of one of central Lake County’s busiest roads was shut down for several hours Wednesday, snarling morning rush-hour motorists, after a truck’s trailer tipped over in Vernon Hills.

No one was seriously injured in the 6:20 a.m. accident on Route 60 at Butterfield Road, said Batallion Chief Kevin Wodrich of the Countryside Fire Protection District.

The truck was pulling two trailers. One of the trailers tipped onto its side as the truck was turning from southbound Butterfield Road onto eastbound Route 60, Vernon Hills police said.

The Con-way Freight truck was hauling two 300-gallon tanks of potassium hydroxide and two 300-gallon tanks of phosphoric acid, the fire department said in a news release, and the tanks leaked. A hazardous-materials team stopped the leaks so workers could clean up the mess.

Tim Olk was at the scene and submitted several images.

New squad for MESS Canteen

From Tim Olk:

The new Mess Canteen M-5 , quartered at the Barrington Countryside FPD station on Pepper Road, is X-Woodstock FRD. One of the features of the new unit is slide-out trays for supplies at deployments replacing the need for folding tables alongside the squad.
