Box alarm in Barrington

The Barrington Fire Department responded to a report of smoke in a vacant restaurant at 301 W. Northwest Highway before 6:30 this evening. Companies arrived to find the structure charged with smoke and proceeded to find the source. In addition to the auto-aid that responded on the initial alarm, Barrington upgraded the incident to a Box Alarm bringing additional units to the scene as a precaution. In fairly short order, the initial companies were able to locate the fire and extinguish it without substantial damage to the structure. Most companies had picked up by 7:00PM. Mutual and auto aid was provided by Long Grove, Lake Zurich, Wauconda, Cary, Fox River Grove, Palatine, and Wheeling.

Naperville reassignments …. requires a scorecard

Several months ago we posted the Naperville Fire Department to the site. Several photographers visited the department on separate occasions to document the new equipment and the placement of companies in each station. Several of the rigs had been moved and reassigned since they were photographed a year or so ago but everything was brought up-to-date for the posting with the help of Naperville Lt. Andy Hilk.

Well, we had received information that the Naperville FD was not yet done moving companies and that changes were coming. Bill Friedrich submitted the following information regarding reassignments throughout the stations.

  • Medic 9 is out of service
  • Medic 1 is now using the 2007 IHC/Medtec that was previously Medic 9
  • Squad 1 (1997 E-ONE) has moved back to Station 8 and is now Squad 8 … again
  • Engine 8’s 2008 Crimson rig is back at Station 1 as Engine 1
  • The 2009 Crimson quint from Truck 10 is now running as Truck 5
  • The 2005 E-ONE tower ladder which was Truck 5 is now a spare
  • The 1994 E-ONE tower ladder without a pump that was in reserve has now been decommissioned and will likely be sold
  • Engine 10 is now using a 2005 E-ONE Typhoon
  • The TRT trailer is moving to Station 10

New engine for Westchester

The Westchester Fire Department in Division 20 has reportedly purchased an E-ONE Typhoon engine. The unit which was a demonstrator has a 2,000-GPM pump and carries 1,000 gallons of water. Presumably it also has a foam tank.

Naperville is coming to the site

Naperville, in Division 16, currently has 10 stations. As can be imagined, it’s a large task to accumulate all of the information and photos to post the department at once. With that in mind, Andrew Hilk, Bill Friedrich, and Larry Shapiro are working toward that end. As of now, all 10 stations have pages on the site with placeholders for the assigned apparatus. Roughly a third of the apparatus photos have been posted but several vehicles have been reassigned and have not been photographed with their most recent numbering. In addition, there are new deliveries to keep up with as several fleet updates have occurred in the last year. Hopefully, it won’t be long before the entire department is portrayed to reflect complete accuracy.

Naperville has three of these engines - Engine 2, Engine 5 and Engine 13
