This from Steve Redick:

Had an amazing opportunity recently. I was able to get a shot of the entire 1st battalion assembled at the end of navy pier. This was an apparatus maneuvering and spotting drill and resulted in what I feel is a once in a lifetime shot. All of the members assigned to the units are in the image as well. The full size image has just enough resolution to be able to identify most of the people in the photo. Both boats positioned very well in the background as well as a bit of skyline round it all out.

Located outside of 127’s present house. Lintel from old 103 and terra cotta panels from old 55. A hidden gem of cool Chicago Fire Department history.

I finally had a chance to view this memorial. I remember the night this happened, I was listening to the CFD radio.
I always thought this was inside the firehouse.. It was done well and worth a look. A very sad story and I can’t imagine the suffering he went through before he died.

Car into a building in Chicago, 2-28-21

This from Steve Redick:

4500 block of N Austin in the wee hours of 2-28. These were taken the next day. I have not seen a car buried into the corner of a building like this before. Pretty amazing if you look closely. I am also amazed the CFD left the scene to what I guess would be a contractor to remove the wreckage. I would be worried about fire and collapse. I wasn’t there to see what preceded this so I am not in a position to really comment, but I thought these were worth a look.
