Wauconda Fire District news

From the Wauconda Fire District Facebook page:

It is with a heavy heart that the Fire District announces the death of retired Division Chief Al Schlick Tuesday evening. Chief Schlick began his career as a paid-on-call firefighter with Wauconda in November of 1987. He transitioned to a full time position in June of 1991 rising up through the ranks to Division Chief of Training. Chief Schlick retired from Wauconda in July of 2015. From there he served as Deputy Chief with the Huntley Fire District. Chief Schlick made everyone around him a better person. His passion, love, and knowledge of the fire service is what made him a mentor to so many. Chief Schlick had the ability to see the potential in people entering the fire service and help them achieve their very best. His advice was sought out by young and old across this great nation. Certainly the Wauconda Fire District was the beneficiary of his selfless service and friendship, and he will be truly missed. Thank you for your service Al – we will take it from here.

Remembering Al Schlick
