how do you value the lives of your kids and your belongings? Lincoln parks 22 year old fire department ladder truck is in a severe state of dis-repair. the mayor and council refused to adequately repair or replace this truck. this truck has been out of service since march of 2007 due to dangerous mechanical conditions. The mayor and council think that you(the residents) would rather save money than invest it in the safety of you, your family and you neighnors. this is an important issue that should not be ingnored. please contact your mayor to voice your concern for public safety

that is crazy!! if i were you, i would gather people, and fight for it. there is no way a town should not allow up to date fire apparatus.

lpfd24 i have been hearing 6 weeks for 2 months now and it is still not here. Besides when it comes back it should be at company 2 since company 1 members dont even climb the ladder. how do firefighters not go on ladders?

first off the truck is back and in service finally! the mayor and council have tabled the new truck saying that they "would try and fit it into next years buget". So, i guess no ladder truck for a few years seeing that the bonds are due on the new buildings and we dont have the money for that either. and to the lincoln park resident with the inappropriate comment about company 1 not climbing the ladder: we do climb it but since we are usually the first due we are inside the building. and company 2 has a hard time getting a driver for their engine, neverless a ladder truck.
