Steger Estates Fire Protection District news

From the Steger Estates FPD Facebook page:

Since 1957, the residents of the Steger Estates district have worked together to provide a fire station that answers the calls for Fire and Emergency Medical Services. We have shared with one another, and our neighbors, fire apparatus and personnel trained to answer the calls that no one wants to receive. We are proud of every member that has stepped up to answer the calls, knowing that the safety and well-being of our residents are the reason we are here.
As we look to the future and the continuing to provide services to our residents and our neighbors, we are asking for your help. On November 8th, there will be a measure on the ballot for a referendum. This referendum will increase the budget of the Steger Estates Fire Protection District by $150,000.00. The increase will be used primarily for the improvement of our staffing. We have enjoyed the benefit provided by duty and service of residents volunteering to answer the call, for many years. With changes in obligations and a decrease in volunteerism, we are looking to make operational changes in hopes of being able to provide 24 hour paid staffing.
For more than 60 years, the residents of our district have helped to save hundreds of lives by providing for this fire service. Help us to continue to help you for the next 60 years.

thanks Dennis

Steger Estates is added to the site

Karl Klotz provided images of another department in MABAS Division  27. The Steger Estates Fire Protection District is a volunteer department working out of one station at 23940 S. Kings Road in Crete. They have an ambulance, a tanker, an engine, and a brush rig.

The newest piece is a 2005 HME/SFO/Ahrens Fox pumper tanker. They also run an E-ONE engine on a Freightliner chassis and one of the remaining E-ONE ambulances in the area.
