Good afternoon, 

My name is Maria Ramirez and am a resident of Stone Park.  Recently, we worked to get signatures to the following question on the ballot in an effort to get our fire department reinstated.  We are now at the beginning of early voting and still trying to gather funds to safely inform the residents to vote “YES”.  Please help us by posting our Go Fund Me link.  Any and all monetary donations are appreciated.  $5, $10 anything.  
Funds will go towards the purchase of signage and printed materials.  
Please also visit our website and watch the 70 years of service video.

Stone Park Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Yesterday the Stone Park fire chief notified his employees that he will be outsourcing their work and closing up the fire department immediately after the New Year. The memo from the chief came just days after learning that the 13 firefighter/paramedics that work for the Stone Park Fire Department had filed a majority interest petition with the Illinois Labor Relations Board (ILRB) to be represented by Teamsters Local 700.

On Dec. 2, 2019, the Stone Park Fire Department issued a memo from the deputy chief that the department was now accepting applications for firefighter/paramedics. The ILRB petition for Teamster representation of the current employees was filed on Dec. 5, 2019.

The chief sent out another memo on Dec. 18, 2019 notifying the current firefighters and paramedics that starting in January, their work would be outsourced to the Melrose Park Fire Department due to the best interests of the taxpayers of Stone Park.

“The chief first put out applications for firefighter/EMS and then not even two weeks later says that the village doesn’t have the funds to support the fire department anymore,” said Teamsters Local 700 President Michael G. Melone. “From our experience, this move is not only despicable but puts the residents of Stone Park at risk. Outsourcing the fire department to a nearby town means higher response times when it comes to emergencies. The chief must think that the lives of the people in Stone Park aren’t worth the extra nuisance of having the union around. All of the residents in Stone Park should be extremely concerned and should be asking the village and the mayor why they are allowing this to happen.”

thanks Danny

New home for Stone Park engine (more)

Dennis McGuire, Jr. found this on Facebook

Excerpts from

The Latrobe Freewill Hose Company 3 & 4 of Latrobe, Pennsylvania was in search of a new unit last year. When the unit they had initially looked at was sold, they turned to Command Fire Apparatus.

“We completely stand behind purchasing our 2001 Seagrave Pumper from Command Fire. Working with Glenn couldn’t have gone better,” said Captain Mike Skapura. “The company was extremely attentive to our needs when we found bits and pieces that we were displeased with,” continued Skapura.

Though the unit came with a handful of problems, the department took advantage of the 90 day warranty.

“The few problems we encountered with our Seagrave were handled with a high sense of efficiency,” expressed Captain Skapura. “We know that if and when we need a new unit, Command Fire Apparatus is where we’ll be purchasing from.”
