See Miami Dolphins Tailgate Fire? Will Arlington Heights Need Another Fire Station If Bears Stadium Rises at Arlington Park?

Here’s one reason that supports the reasoning that Arlington Heights will need an additional fire station near Arlington Park if the Chicago Bears build a stadium on the far west side of Arlington Heights: The risk of careless and reckless tailgaters. Careless handling of a charcoal grill or other grill is the suspected cause of a fire that destroyed multiple vehicles outside the Miami Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on Sunday, September 11, 2022. Arlington Heights Fire Department already has a mutual aid agreement with Rolling Meadows Fire Department to cover parts of Arlington Heights near Rolling Meadows, but the City of Rolling Meadows can’t be expected to pick up all of the demand that would be created by a new development along with a new Chicago Bears stadium.




The two closest Arlington Heights fire stations are about eight or nine minutes away in normal traffic. Rolling Meadows Fire Station 16 at 2340 Hicks Road in Rolling Meadows is the closest fire station — only about a minute or two away. Arlington Heights Fire Station 1 is located in downtown Arlington Heights near Arlington Heights Road and Sigwalt Street (about 3 miles away). Arlington Heights Fire Station 2 is located across the railroad tracks, and is located near Arlington Heights Road and Oakton Street (also about 3 miles away). Arlington Heights Fire Station 1 is a little closer to the Arlington Park property, compared to Arlington Heights Fire Station 2.
