Northwestern University Purchases Ambulance for Evanston

Posted on Monday Aug 08, 2011 NU Logo.jpg Northwestern University will donate a new ambulance to the City of Evanston, Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl announced today. “We appreciate very much the continued support of Northwestern University for our fire and life safety department,” Mayor Tisdahl said. “Northwestern University is a wonderful part of our community, and we are grateful to receive this generous donation.” The new ambulance, which will be an advanced life support transport unit, will go into frontline service this fall, as soon as the licensing process is completed," said Greg Klaiber, Evanston Fire and Life Safety Services Chief. "The new ambulance will replace a current unit that the city will then keep in reserve for use as needed. The new ambulance includes a power cot, power oxygen lift and a heart monitor/defibrillator" “This addition to our fleet will enable us to continue to provide excellent, responsive service to Evanston residents,” Klaiber said. Northwestern will donate approximately $253,000 to the City, which will cover the entire cost of the new ambulance. In 2009 Northwestern donated $550,000 to the City for the purchase of a new fire engine, which went into service the following year. “We’re very pleased to continue to support the City of Evanston in its efforts to provide services that benefit the entire Evanston community, including Northwestern students, faculty and staff,” said Northwestern President Morton Schapiro. “Northwestern and the City are partners in many important efforts, such as mutual police support, so we hope this donation further solidifies what is an already productive relationship.”

Thank you to Northwestern University on the generous donation of our latest piece of Fire Apparatus.  Although there will be time to add equipment, hose, computer, and other necessary equipment which will take about a month, the new Engine 23 should be in service sometime in October at Fire Station 3, 1105 Central Street. (The rig did go into service that October.)

The Fireman's Park Rededication Ceremony was held on Thursday, July 22, 2010.  Local 742 would like to extend our heart felt gratitude to all those who came to help us rededicate this special park.  Thanks to the supporters, the neighbors, the local members who worked countless hours, those who purchased bricks and benches, those who came to the ceremony from other Local's and the AFFI Honor Guard, Evanston Honor Guard, Evanston Police Department Honor Guard, all of our distinguished guests and speakers, Interim Chief Greg Klaiber, and all who came to honor those who have selflessly sacrificed their lives in the Line of Duty and our fallen comrades' that have served the Evanston Fire Department.  It was a wonderful tribute, and we hope the neighborhood enjoys the park for years to come.

Although "Friends of Firemen’s Park" is now completed, your opportunity to purchase bricks for the park has not run out.  Orders are still being taken.
Your name or loved one will be deeply engraved into a brick and will
permanently be displayed at Firemen’s Park, located at Simpson and Maple. 
What a way to leave a lasting impression. 

All Proceeds will used to maintain Firemen’s Park
