Wonder Lake FPD added to the site

Wonder Lake Fire Protection District

The Wonder Lake Fire Protection District in McHenry County has been added to the site . Information was provided by Karl Klotz, Steve Redick, and Larry Shapiro who photographed the stations and apparatus last week.

The district encompasses 11 square miles and has two stations. The main station is staffed around the clock and the outlying station only at night. Their rosters consists of 45 part-time firefighters and paramedics.

They have three ambulances, two engines, two 3,000-gallon commercial tankers, a heavy rescue, and a brush unit. They also have three boats of their own, plus they  house a pair of MABAS Division 5 boats as well. One of their engines was previously part of the McHenry Township FPD.
