1. Storm Victim Help

Visit any Chicago fire house from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. today, Thanksgiving, or Friday, Nov. 29 to give to those in need. You can also mail in donations. The members of Engine 123 started with the idea of helping tornado victims in Washington, Illinois; Coal City, Illinois; Diamond, Illinois; and other areas.

Chicago Firefighters Union Local 2 President Tom Ryan said firefighters recommended citizens donate water, cleaning supplies, 30-gallon plastic drums, gloves, heavy duty plastic bags, gift cards to home improvement stores such as Home Depot, pharmacies and grocery stores.

My FOX Chicago “Good Day” Chicago also spoke with the firefighters at 2215 W. 51st Street fire house Wednesday morning, the primary drop off location firehouse near 51st and Oakley.

2. The Great Chicago Fire Hydrants

The Great Chicago Fire Hydrant’s interview with Agency 360′s Billy Bracken. The program was started about 6 months ago with 101 sponsors, 101 artists, with 101 fire hydrants at 101 active firehouses. Proceeds from auctioning of the fire hydrants go to the families of fallen public servants. Auction is December 4, 2013. Following the public exhibition, the hydrants will be auctioned at the Hyatt Regency on December 4th to benefit the 100 Club of Chicago.

The 100 Club of Chicago is the civilian organization that provides for the families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who have lost their lives in the line-of-duty. The Club helps families ease the financial burden associated with the tragic event, including immediate financial assistance and the ongoing cost of higher education. All federal, state, county and local police officers, firefighters and paramedics stationed in Cook County are included.

3. Notable Retirement

Tribute to Lt. Bobby Loesch retirement after 34 years on the job as a Chicago firefighter.
