Hoffman Estates Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Ambulance rates in Hoffman Estates are going up. It used to cost about $1,200 for residents and $1,500 for non-residents, and that price is now going up to nearly $3,400 for both.

There is also going to be another $20 tacked on per mile. The village says it’s to raise $25 million to replace its two oldest fire stations.

thanks Martin and Rob
