Box Alarm fire in Tinley Park, 4-8-18

This from Eric Haak:

Tinley Park had a Box Alarm at 7121 Laverne Lane at about noon on Sunday (4/8/2018). The first arriving company had a well-involved unit on the third floor of an apartment building. The fire was out before I could make my way down there so with no tactical images to be taken, I snapped a bunch of south suburban rigs to share.

Tinley Park Fire Department news

From the Tinley Park Fire Department Firefighter’s Association Facebook:

After 18 years of serving the Village of Tinley Park and surrounding communities, this week, we bid farewell to Engine (Shop ID) 0020. This engine was purchased as one of three “triplets” in 2000. The other two of the three triplets are still in service with the TPFD. This engine served as E201 out of station 1, then was moved and served as E202 out of station 2 where it was renumbered to E47 with the MABAS 24 numbering change. Most recently, it was moved back to station 1 as E46 once station 46 began running a dedicated engine company out of it along with the truck company. It will continue to serve now with the Summit Fire Department who purchased it from us.

Tinley Park Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

James M. Patton, 69, a former firefighter and assistant fire chief in Tinley Park, was killed when his plane crashed into a field Saturday at the Chicago Glider Club in Minooka, according to Will County Sheriff Deputy Chief Tom Budde.

Witnesses at the club, told investigators they saw one of the wings of Patton’s plane dip after the glider detached from the tow plane. The glider then stalled and nose-dived into the field shortly after.

Patton’s wife Gwen, said her husband has held a pilot’s license for his Cessna plane for at least 25 years. He began flying the glider plane about 10 years ago.

He was a 25-year veteran of the Tinley Park Fire Department. He started out as a firefighter in 1967 and rose through the ranks to eventually be named assistant fire chief in 1976. He held that post until he retired in 1992.

He was involved in setting up MABAS. He also played a key role in helping computerize the fire department, Deputy Fire Chief Steve Klotz said.

Patton is survived by Gwen, his wife of 48 years; two daughters, Lisa (John) Ouradnik and Chris, and two granddaughters, Molly and Carter.

thanks Dan
