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.

Rolling Meadows FD Station 15

Excerpts from the

Rolling Meadows firefighters on Tuesday spent their last day at Fire Station 15 on Meadow Drive before moving into their new station at 3201 Algonquin Rd. Wednesday (Dec. 18).

“This station was built in the early to mid ‘50s and has served the community since then, about 65 years,” said a Facebook post from the Rolling Meadows Fire Dept. “Tens of thousands of emergency calls have had equipment respond from this firehouse. We wish her well, but can’t be certain of her future.”

The city council approved plans to build two new fire stations for $13 million last September after years of discussion. In addition to the $5.8 million Fire Station 15, Fire Station 16 is expected to be relocated from Plum Grove Road to a new building on Hicks Road.

According to Fire Chief Terry Valentino, moving to the new locations will allow firefighters to reach residents anywhere in the city within four to six minutes. He said service was not expected to be interrupted due to the move, and that Palatine and Schaumburg fire departments agreed to cover any calls during the switch.

Rolling Meadows Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

Participants at the “Firefighter for a Day” training program were all medical professionals, including physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons, who spent a day walking in the shoes of their patients. Wearing complete firefighting gear, they crawled through simulations of burning buildings, advanced hose lines into a heated fire environment, and learned how to transport a victim from a second-floor fire.

Working alongside of them were firefighters from Hanover Park, Morton Grove, Mount Prospect, Northbrook, Des Plaines, and Rolling Meadows. The daylong session took place at the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy in Glenview and was organized by the Rolling Meadows Fire Department.

Fire department are working with a new provider network committed to caring for first responders emergency personnel and getting them back on the job as quickly as possible. The philosophy is the brainchild of the Milwaukee-based Tactical Athlete Health and Performance Institute, or TAHPI. The institute was started in 2010 by a physical therapist who formerly worked with major league baseball players. By connecting firefighters to medical specialists who are committed to preventing injury sooner, they are saving the communities they serve in overtime costs, workers’ compensation, and health care.

Last year the access to medical care managed by TAHPI saved the city of Milwaukee around $2.3 million.

A Rolling Meadows firefighter who sustained a back injury last December saw an orthopedic specialist the next day and went for a physical therapy assessment that afternoon because of the city’s enrollment in TAHPI. That week, he eventually was referred to a physical therapist near his home and was back to work in three weeks.

Rolling Meadows was among the first suburban departments to partner with TAHPI, and the other departments who helped out at the training session also signed up. They are among 40 departments in five states who now treat their first responders police officers, firefighters, and paramedics as athletes.

Rolling Meadows Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

The City of Rolling Meadows will soon have 10 new automatic external defibrillators (AED) in public areas of city buildings that can help prevent or mitigate cardiac events by sending electric currents through the heart.

Aldermen unanimously approved the approximately $14,000 purchase from Physio-Control Inc. The company is a division of Stryker, which maintains the city’s seven Life Pak 15 external cardiac monitors.

By trading in four of the previously-used devices, the city was able to save over $1,000 on the purchase. Though the devices are not often used, one AED has been used at a public ice arena in Rolling Meadows, and its use resulted in a cardiac save.
