House fire in Park Ridge, 2-25-20

This from Steve Redick:

Took this job in Tuesday afternoon. I arrived about 10 minutes in and it was all but over. It appears they had quite a volume of fire but were able to knock it down very quickly. If you notice the Niles engine and tower ladder were set up for master stream operations but not used. The first-in Park Ridge quint was heavily damaged in a previous fire and I believe the ladder is out of service. I think it’s running without the aerial being used.

Park Ridge Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

After learning the extent of damages to the city’s only ladder truck in the fire at the former Marathon gas station at Northwest Highway and Oakton this summer, the fire department looked for ways to streamline the process of purchasing a replacement truck. Prices are due to go up at the beginning of the year, and this month offered a small window of time to see that 2020 prices would be higher than they wanted to pay.

The old tower ladder was scheduled to be replaced in the next fiscal year because of its age, but that postpones the year-long construction process at least six more months.

The fire truck purchasing cooperative with the Houston-Galveston Area Council in Texas offers members access to detailed specifications from many fire vehicle manufacturers and gives a chance to order directly from the manufacturer.

They determined the costs for the basic truck, and that the customizing would add approximately $200,000 for the equipment and controls.

The department came back to the December Committee of the Whole to ask for a purchase order, not to exceed $1,136,103 for a rear mount ladder truck made by Pierce Manufacturing with an Enforcer cab and chassis. The measure advanced to the Monday, Dec. 16 council meeting where it passed, 6-0.

The fire department will also be applying for grant programs to help cover the costs.

thanks Bill

Park Ridge Fire Department news

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

When the Park Ridge Fire Department’s tower ladder was irreparably damaged during this summer’s fire at the Marathon gas station, Fire Chief Jeff Sorensen asked to fast-track ordering of a replacement truck, which was scheduled to happen in the next fiscal year anyway.

It takes a year to get a fire truck built, and Sorensen’s efforts to order in 2019 were blocked by the Finance Committee from choosing a sole source provider.

He and the finance department are now seeking approval, officially, to have the city join the Houston-Galveston Area Council, a Texas-based buying cooperative which specializes in detailed analysis of fire department trucks. The request, for joining to get access to detailed specifications from various companies, was approved unanimously by the six council members attending Monday, Dec. 2.
