A request from overseas …

Can anyone assist Karl?; #Retired Austrian Firefighter Karl-Heinz Bitzer;Dear Sir, 

We are planning a trip to Chicago with a group of firefighters from Austria in spring 2025, and of course, they like to visit the CFD on this tour. 
So, I like to ask you, if a visit of the Fire Academy and stations is basically possible and if we could see a fire boat also? 

I am a retired Captain of a large Vol. Fire Dept. in the County of Munich, Germany and had 44 years of active duty there. 
The group are also volunteer and professional firefighters from an area around Vienna and along the river Danube. 

We have already made a tour to New York City and the FDNY in 2023 togehter. 

Thank you for any information in advance, I am looking forward to hearing from you, 

yours sincerely,

Karl-Heinz Bitzer
