Back in the 70’s the City of Loves Park annexed the Rockford Speedway and the Industrial Park just south of it. North Park gave the LPFD a 1000 gallon portable tank. Their reaction, ‘What do we do with this?’. Spoiler, training opportunity. We took a Tuesday night, took over a corner of the Speedway and did a rural water supply class with Loves Park Fire. We went through the evolution explaining each step. After answering questions, we packed up and let them try it themselves. They did great. We picked up and went back to LP Station 2 for coffee. During the review I told Loves Park Fire that they could now do something the City of Chicago could not do. Fight a fire without a hydrant. I am glad to see that the two Department are work so well together. Brother and sisters helping each other. It’s called ‘The Fire Service’.

Avoid 251/ North 2nd between 173 and Harlem due to power lines down on both north and southbound lanes. This will likely be an extended closure. ... See MoreSee Less

The little guy in the first photo saved tens of thousands (if not more) dollars in fire and smoke damage, as well as prevented possible injury to staff and residents at one of our local facilities this afternoon. One sprinkler head controlled a fire in a large commercial dryer until fire crews could find the seat of the fire in zero visibility conditions in the basement. Sprinklers save lives!
