Each of the three Rolling Meadows FD shifts pooled their money and donated several Thanksgiving baskets to families in need. This donation has become a great tradition, that all of the firefighters enjoy being a part of!
Rolling Meadows Firefighters Local 3075 would like to welcome FF/PM Matt Cappelen. Matt comes to us with experience from other departments, and is already fitting in well with his new shift.
RMFD FF Colin Barr attended a weeklong “Statewide WMD Response: Hazardous Materials Technician A” class, sponsored by the Illinois Terrorism Task Force, on October 7-11, 2013.
In the class, instructors from around the state shared their knowledge about chemical, biological, radiological threats and containment/cleanup procedures. Firefighters practiced putting on protective HazMat suits, and performing difficult tasks. The class culminated with several large-scale, mock-HazMat events.
Thanks to all the Rolling Meadows residents who came out to make the 2013 Open House a rousing success!
