Rolling Meadows Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

The Rolling Meadows City Council agreed to sell a 2016 Ford rescue squad valued at $120,000 and a 1994 International/Hackney Hazmat squad valued at $10,000. Both vehicles will be replaced by a new squad that can handle hazmat, technical rescue, swift water, and investigations.

The reduction will also allow space in the firehouse for a Mutual Aid Box Alarm System squad that the city will be able to use. That vehicle has an air compressor and bottle storage needed for fires and specialty incidents, features the city currently does not have. Rolling Meadows will get use of the vehicle in exchange for routine maintenance on it.

New use for old firehouse

Excerpts from the

Once the location for fire trucks and ambulances — and maybe even firehouse chili — the shuttered downtown Rolling Meadows fire station could be converted into a food hall that developers hope could become a destination in the Northwest suburbs.

Coaction Corp. has proposed purchasing the 64-year-old former Station 15 at 3111 Meadow Drive from the city and turning it into The Firehall, an eatery with six booths that would be leased to independent vendors and restaurants, including local craft beer brewer Leaky Keg. Other tenants could include a Thai restaurant, a charcuterie booth, a cocktail bar and a bakery/coffee shop.

Coaction has submitted preliminary floor and site plans to city hall, and on Tuesday night, the company publicly unveiled the concept during a city council committee-of-the-whole meeting.

Under the preliminary plans, restaurants would rent booth spaces ranging in size from 100 to 500 square feet on the ground floor. Tables and chairs would be throughout the hall, along with picnic tables with umbrellas for dining outside the three firehouse garage doors.

A proposed phase two calls for the opening of a cocktail bar on the second floor owned and operated by Coaction called Hosed, which would serve mixed drinks, wine and liquor; and the relocation of Leaky Keg and doubling of the dining space.

The two-story, 5,400-square-foot brick building has been on the market for nearly two years. It was decommissioned in December 2019 when the new $5.8 million, 11,925-square-foot Station 15 opened along Algonquin Road.

The online real estate ad, which lists the property for sale at $549,000, makes reference to the city’s 2019 comprehensive plan that recommends a commercial adaptive reuse of the old firehouse with a possible restaurant. In fact, the planning document includes one such example of a former firehouse-turned-brew pub: The Firehouse Grill, which is inside a restored early 1900s firehouse in Evanston.

The owners would also offer vendors a centralized catering manager as a way to gain additional revenue.

Box alarm fire in Rolling Meadows, 12-29-20

Excerpts from

A resident and a firefighter were injured in a Rolling Meadows condominium fire at approximately 1:30 a.m. Tuesday that displaced 18 families at a large condominium complex at 2412 West Algonquin Road. Both were treated at Northwest Community Hospital, and are in stable condition.

Firefighters moved quickly to contain the blaze in the 18-unit building, which proved to be more difficult while evacuating the condos to make sure no one was trapped inside. Officials said the fire started in a second floor apartment and spread to other units.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the 18 families displaced by the fire.
