Lincolnwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from patch.com:

A man accused of attacking members of the Lincolnwood Fire Department while inside an ambulance was ordered to remain jailed for at least a week unless he can come up with $90,000 in cash.

Anthony Campisano, 43, of Lincolnwood, was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a firefighter-paramedic, both felonies, and one count of aggravated assault, a misdemeanor.

According to the charges, he swung a closed fist and spat in his face of one paramedic and kicked another repeatedly in the leg.

Police initially encountered Campisano, who appeared to be intoxicated, laying on a front yard in the 6800 block of Tripp Avenue shortly after 5 p.m.

Campisano, who was sitting in a cot in an ambulance, became irate after police left and began shouting and using profanity. Before he was restrained by multiple members of the fire department, he managed to kick a paramedic in the shin several times. Police returned to the scene and took him into custody.

According to the state’s attorney’s office and court staff, Campisano has approximately nine felony and 10 misdemeanor convictions, which in recent years includes multiple convictions for battery, violation of and order of protection, and resisting arrest.

Lincolnwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Lincolnwood is one of the first suburbs in the area to locate a fire station at an assisted living facility, where many 9-1-1- calls originate.

The Lincolnwood Fire Department has opened its second, smaller station inside The Carrington at Lincolnwood, the assisted living facility that opened in 2018 at 3501 Northeast Parkway.

The station houses an ambulance and living quarters for two paramedics, and also serves residents and businesses in the east portion of Lincolnwood. Given its site, Lincolnwood Fire Chief Michael Hansen pointed to the immediate response times for Carrington residents as a significant benefit.

The station’s personnel will serve the Carrington, as well as the nearby Lincolnwood Place, another assisted living facility. The firefighters working at the Carrington will also be responsible for the Lincolnwood Town Center Mall, plus the village’s east side, serving over 45 percent of the community.

The department staffs the station from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., though Hansen did not rule out changes in operation times in the future. During the other 12 hours of the day, emergency services come from the station at 6900 N. Lincoln Avenue.

Creating the ambulance bay and space for paramedics was a goal for the Carrington’s ownership group when the facility was originally proposed to the village.
