Wheeling Fire Department news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

#chicagoareafire.com; #ScottSalela; #WheelingFD; #firechief;Scott A. Salela, most recently the division chief of support services with the Naperville Fire Department, will succeed Mike McGreal as the new chief of the Wheeling Fire Department.

The search for a chief began in October, and Salela was among 37 candidates for the post, seven were interviewed, and four were finalists.

Salela is expected to begin his new job Feb. 20 and receive a $180,000 base annual salary.

Formed in 1896, the Wheeling Fire Department was a volunteer organization until 1969, and Salela will be just its third chief.

Apartment fire in Wheeling, 12-19-23 (more)

From the PHFD BC assigned to the fourth floor:

The crews did a fantastic job at the structure fire in Wheeling. The Fire Attack Lead-Out from the standpipe used all three 75-foot sections of 2-inch hose to reach the fire unit. As a reminder, Wheeling and Prospect Heights utilize the same 2″ Denver Load Packs. Excellent job by E39 applying water from the exterior with a 2 1/2″ prior to Wheeling E23 having their 2″ line in place. The exterior attack really helped E23 get their line deployed. E23 had a pressure of 140psi at the gauge.

I am also told there was significant spalling of the precast concrete ceiling/floor inside the fire unit.

Apartment fire in Wheeling, 12-19-23

Wheeling and Prospect Heights firefighters were sent to 375 Plum Creek Drive on Tuesday morning after a Wheeling Police Department Community Service Officer spotted heavy smoke from a fourth floor apartment. On arrival, flames and smoke were pushing out of a fourth floor balcony in the center of the building with extension to the fifth floor balcony. Wheeling Truck 24 hit it with an elevated master stream and Prospect Heights Engine 39 stretched a 2 1/2″ line to hit it from the base of the building before crews got into place for an interior attack.

Crash with car fire in the Prospect Heights Fire District, 11-1-23

Firefighters from Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, and Wheeling along with police officers from Buffalo Grove and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police responded to a reported car fire Wednesday night near Dundee Road and Buffalo Grove Road. The police arrived first and reported a vehicle fully engulfed by fire on Buffalo Grove Road at East Park Place, which is almost a quarter of a mile south of Dundee Road in a small area of unincorporated Cook County that is within the Prospect Heights Fire District (PHFD).

The area which is without hydrants, is served through an agreement between the PHFD and Buffalo Grove. The initial response included Prospect Heights Battalion 9 with Ambulance 9 along with Buffalo Grove Tower 25. While en route, Battalion 9 requested a second engine after the report of a well-involved car fire and Wheeling Engine 24 was added to the response.  A Buffalo Grove ambulance was sent at the request of Tower 25 upon their arrival and the discovery of a two-vehicle crash. Prospect Heights Tanker 9 was added to the response in lieu of using a several block supply line as it became evident that the tank water from both the tower and the engine was not going to be sufficient.

The car’s occupant self extricated and it appeared that the driver of the pickup truck may have fled the scene before the police arrived. One person was transported to the hospital and several others signed releases at the scene.

Rendering of the new Fire Station 24 in Wheeling

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

Wheeling trustees unanimously approved construction for Fire Station 42 to be rebuilt at 135 McHenry Rd. with a maximum price tag of $7,699,244. Village officials say they have saved the money to make this happen, and would not need the support of taxpayers by referendum or lenders. Wheeling has been saving funds for this since 2019. Based on call volume and call location studies, the village needed to have two stations on the west side of the railroad tracks.

The project was introduced with a budget goal of $5 million, but flood detention fix costs exceeded the $5 million, prompting a higher expected cost. Construction on the 10,700 sq. ft. building should to break ground this spring and take a year to complete.

The new station will be substantially the same as Fire Station 23 at 780 S. Wheeling Rd. Since 2009, the current Station 42 has been shared with the Wheeling Police Department on Dundee Road. It was meant to be a temporary solution. 

thanks Andy
