A request for assistance …


My name is Kinzie and I just recently bought a tshirt from one of the fire swap meet events that has the House Of Pain stuff on the back and my father in law absolutely loves it. 
I can’t find any more of these tshirts anywhere and was wondering if you had any available anywhere and know of anywhere I could find one. 
Thank you so much in advance!!

Excerpts from

The Village of Gurnee and Warren Waukegan Fire Protection District Celebrate the Grand Opening of Fire Station 3

GURNEE, IL – The Village of Gurnee and the Warren Waukegan Fire Protection District (WWFPD) celebrated the grand opening of Fire Station 3, located at 5330 Manchester Drive Gurnee, IL 60031 with a ribbon cutting and celebration on Wednesday, October 13th at 1:00pm. Fire Station 3 compliments the two current fire station facilities serving the Village of Gurnee and the WWFPD. At 14,452 sq ft, the new fire station will be staffed with five firefighter/paramedics, and house two ambulances and one ladder truck.

The Village of Gurnee conducted multiple analyses and planned for the addition over several years. The strategic location of the facility will improve call response times, especially as multiple calls for service come in simultaneously, and provides for easy access on to Interstate 94 and Route-120.

In 2019, the original bid for the project came in at approximately $6.3M. Fire Station 3 was included in the 20/21 capital budget, however it was one of the expenditures delayed in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to construction and supply trends around June 2020, the contractor suggested the village seek bids for construction. Following the advisement, bids came in at $5.8M. Despite the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on all aspects of the economy and daily life, the construction of Station 3 was not affected.
