Bolingbrook site corrections

Thanks to all of the readers who brought to our attention the errors which occurred when Bolingbrook was added to the site last week. Evidently the proof reading/checking phase of the upload was over looked which resulted in several errors. Hopefully, all has been corrected with the listing of Truck 1, the updated radio frequency, and the station numbers and addresses.

Bolingbrook has been added to the site

Bolingbrook Fire Department patch

The Bolingbrook Fire Department in MABAS Division 16, has been added to the site. Bolingbrook runs out of five stations. Each station has a suppression company and all but Station 5 run a medic unit. The suppression company at Station 1 is a jump company utilizing either the engine or the truck depending on the nature of the dispatch. As mentioned previously, a new engine is on order for Station 5, and a new medic unit will be in service before the year ends.

Missing from the images posted on the site are a 1992 Seagrave reserve engine at Station 4, and two large trailers. One at Station 4 carries a Gator AWD unit, and one at Station 5 houses the technical rescue equipment.

The medic unit running out of Station 1 was formerly owned by Air Angels, Inc. which went out of business in February of 2009. Air Angels operated ground medical transport and helicopter transport. In 2008, an Air Angels helicopter crashed.
