      Too.... hot..... to....... type.....CR. Went to Holiday World in Indiana Saturday and the first thing I told one of our "newbie" Lt's was to call plenty of mutual aid right out of the door if we have a call because it's way too hot to go at it alone. Fortunately we didn't have anything. Supposed to be close to 100 here Wednesday.

          I am here! Been busy and have not taken time to post much lately.
          It's a good afternoon to work in the home office because it's hotter than [email protected] out there. If this heat keeps up and we don't get any rain we may have to change our names from flatlanders to wastelanders.

          Watch the heat and take care everyone.

            CR, you're up north - near the north pole, right? It's "cooler" there than down south.
            Like Chad said, near 100 all week down here.
            And for the record, I've contributed a few times the last couple weeks.

            Chad, you're giving the orders now?

                CR, I'm glad you qualified that by refering to the French portion of our citizenry by spelling Canadian "Canadien"! Otherwise I might take it as an insult HAHAHA

                Hope you're all having a great summer!

                Jack ... long time no talk!


                Marty, If you ended up in Illinois by taking a wrong turn at Albuquerque, you're in bigger trouble than you think hehehe

                    Jack & CR, somebody has to!! Chief was out of town on vacation and Asst. Chief was gone for weekend camping. Two other Capts. above me weren't available either. We were kinda short on officers.

                    We're about to get a big thunderstorm. That will sure make it nice. Nothing like 90+ degrees and about 200% humidity!

                      Chlorine leak
                      33 taken to local hospitals following Sunday incident

                      By Mike Lyons

                      [email protected]

                      815-937-3377

                      Over 900 people seeking relief from torrid temperatures at Kankakee's Splash Valley Aquatic Center were evacuated Sunday evening when chlorine fumes drifted across the popular water recreation facility.

                      Some 33 people were rushed to city hospitals complaining of breathing difficulties, but all were treated and then released, said Kankakee Fire Chief Ron Young.

                      Alarmed by the telltale bleachlike stench, park personnel alerted the Kankakee Fire Department shortly before 6 p.m., said Young.

                      "There was the smell of chlorine, which smells like bleach in the air," Young said of the situation which greeted his fire/rescue teams upon arrival.

                      "All the patrons were gathered in the northwest corner of the park. They wanted to prepare for an evacuation so they gathered them there, an area that would have been out of the wind," said Young.

                      Young said his fire teams triggered alarms which brought up to a dozen extra ambulances to the scene. A countywide hazardous materials team was activated as well.

                      Fire teams donned breathing gear and entered a building containing stored chemicals, but no leaks were detected.

                      Daily Journal reporter Lee Provost, attending with his family, said the food court was closed around 2:30 to 3 p.m. and the lap pool was closed around 3 p.m. due to cloudy water that made it difficult for park personnel to monitor swimmers.

                      It was unclear today if those occurrences were related to the apparent chlorine incident.

                      Kankakee Valley Park District Board President Derek Denoyer said a defective pump is being eyed as the possible cause of the leak.

                      "It's speculative right now that we had a short in one of our pumps (and) that's being investigated this morning by our staff," Denoyer said.

                      He said it is possible Splash Valley may reopen today, but "we're going to keep the water park closed until we know 100 percent what's going on."

                      Fire/rescue teams were able to leave the scene by 7:30 p.m., said Young, lauding the performance of emergency responders.

                      "I'm more than satisfied with the way it went," Young said.

                      "I think the firefighters and the officers as well as the hazmat team and other responding units did a great job. Training pays off."

                            Her best score for nine to date. We celebrated.
