North Riverside FD at MVA

A few weeks back, there was a 3 car collision on Des Plaines Avenue between Riverside and North Riverside. It was in the middle of morning rush hour and caused quite a backup. On scene were both the Fire and Police Departments of North Riverside and Riverside. Engine 1621 of Riverside Fire/Rescue as well as Engine 807 from North Riverside Fire Department responded, as did both town's primary ambulances. Many police units were on scene to help with the flow of traffic.

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
