Together these three websites offer a comprehensive directory and news resource for people who live, work and play in Arlington Heights. Find the right information for your life!

A news flash section has quick reports on Arlington Heights area news of emergency services responders and crime fighters as fast as major Chicago area news outlets.

Firefighters and paramedics at the original Fire Station 2 (709 N. Arlington Heights Road) in the early 1980’s.  Standing left to right:  Glen Amundsen, Ron Porter, Dennis Ritter, Gerald Colignon, and Bruce Rodewald, who later became the third fire chief for Arlington Heights. Seated: Publisher/Designer Mark Bostrom and Terry Valentino, who later became a Battalion Chief.

The author of these websites is Mark Bostrom, a former paramedic and fire dispatcher for the Arlington Heights Fire Department. Mark Bostrom is currently a personal trainer, author and publisher for numerous local and global websites involving local community directories and health and fitness content. See AA-ER.com for more information.

Mark brings expertise in human factors, ergonomics, safety engineering and human performance to the local and global websites published by AA-ER.com. A Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology was supported by studies in work physiology and sports science disciplines, ergonomics and safety engineering. Mark’s goal is to always improve human-machine and human-environment interaction from a ‘humans first’ approach. When all is well in a digital lifestyle world and a real world, ‘machines work and humans perform.’  In fact, that is the tag-line for AA-ER.com (aka … Aprioriathletics.com). When lifestyle is designed for optimal performance, and optimal interaction with machines and other human beings; a higher, even unexpected level of performance is possible. The power of the human mind and body is activated to higher levels of achievement when it is not bogged down by poor design, fear, doubt and uncertainty. Good design in your lifestyle brings gratitude and the will and affirmation to succeed … success that is possibly far greater than you even expect.

Mark brings a wealth of information about the Arlington Heights and Chicago metropolitan area with experience in emergency services and common sense ‘how to get things done’ as a paramedic with the Arlington Heights Fire Department. His relationships and memories of one grandfather, Ralph L. Hoffie, who was a Village Trustee for the Village of Arlington Heights and another grandfather, Carl E. Bostrom, who was President of the Chicago Board of Trade are filled with experience and enlightenment to design, publish and deliver the helpful local information that fills the Arlingtoncards.com websites.

Mark’s interest in the fire service and breaking news may have somehow come from both grandfathers. Ralph L. Hoffie, as a Village Trustee, was instrumental in helping Arlington Heights purchase its first modern pumper, an American La France Fire Engine. Carl E. Bostrom, as President of the Chicago Board of Trade with an interest in grain commodities, responded to spectacular grain elevator fires that occurred occasionally in Chicago and downstate Illinois.
