CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:11 AM Wednesday to a report of people affected by fumes at a commercial building — the home of Healthcare Financial Resources and the International Training Academy cosmetology school at 830 North Meacham Road Schaumburg, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that one female collapsed. She was apparently conscious but complaining of respiratory symptoms.

Schaumburg firefighter/paramedics responded with a Hazmat Level 1 response and immediately went to work to investigate the source of the fumes.

Several people were complaining that they wanted to be checked by paramedics. A triage area was set up to check out people’s health status at the scene.
About 15 patient were evaluated at the scene.

Initial assessment revealed that some type of roofing patch material may have had vapors that entered the building by an air conditioning intake. The product was determined to be a caulk material that was being used near the air conditioning system. The air handlers were turned off to prevent further intake of the vapors or fumes.

The building was completely evacuated by 11:40 a.m.

Northwest Community Hospital was notified that five patients may be transported to area hospitals with symptoms of a respiratory irritant. No patients appeared to be suffering life-threatening symptoms at the scene at the time of the incident.

Fire command reported two people were being transported or were transported by 11:55 a.m.
