From the Elgin Association of Firefighters, IAFF Local 439 @IAFF.Local.439 Facebook page:

Due to a budget cut imposed onto the Elgin Fire Department, Elgin, Illinois, Engine 6, located at 707 W. Chicago St. will be out of service for at least 280 days a year. Last year, Engine 6 responded to over 3,000 Emergency calls!

The Union and Fire Chief agree that this is a reduction in overall service to the residents of Elgin. If you live, work, or own a business in Elgin, it is imperative that you contact the Council Members listed below to state your opposition to this reduction in service!
