North Riverside IL Fire Department on-Scene at MVA

On September 25, 2010, there was a head-on collision between two vehicles on 1st Avenue in North Riverside. The occupants in the cars were injured and taken down the road to Loyola University Medical Center. The North Riverside Fire Department and Police Department as well as the Chicago Zoological Society Police Department and the Brookfield Police Department were the first units on-scene. The first ambulances on-scene were from fellow MABAS 11 departments Berwyn and Forest Park. Riverside and Broadview ambulances were called, but only Broadview was needed. Drew Gresik photo
