Although media coverage for the response drill was extensive, evidently it was all centered at the north staging site at NIPSTA in Glenview. Reportedly the sites in Hoffman Estates and Tinley Park received much less media attention. Larry Shapiro photo

Tinley Park updates

Karl Klotz stopped by Tinley Park last week so that he could provide some updated photos for the site. The page for Station 1 now has photos of Battalion 201 and Battalion 202, while the page for Station 2 has an updated photo of the tower ladder which is now lettered as Truck Co 202 (previously it was lettered as 203).
