FDNY Rescue 4

Here is a picture of retired FDNY Rescue 4 and our Carpentersville Engine 92. Squad 4 was the only FDNY Rescue to remain in service after 9/11 because it was parked two blocks away. Below is a picture of where it was parked right when the second tower came down. Rescue 4's company was in that tower as well.

Carpentersville professional firefighters Local 4790 have brokered a deal that will keep two career firefighters employed. Village officials indicated funding issues led to the layoff notices given to two firefighters after a recent contract was settled. "It was difficult news to here after we bargained a contract in good faith and heard nothing about potential layoffs, but we had to the come to the table with an open mind" Nieves said. Local 4790 did it's due diligence to offer solutions that would not affect our members or the community as a whole. We found ways to significantly reduce overtime costs to the village through scheduling flexibility for the next couple of years. "We think the solution is a fair compromise and proves to the public overtime had nothing to do with our problems with the village. Our goal has and always will be to inform the community on what is going on within the fire department and how it will affect them. Maintaining these firefighters helps us work towards maintaining service levels the community should expect. Local 4790 has expressed concerns to village regarding reductions to levels not seen since 2000 of only 10 firefighters per day in a worst case scenario. This is our next challenge, how can we add firefighters in a budget that is being squeezed from all sides. It is the belief of Local 4790 that the current trend of public safety reductions will have a negative impact on the community. "This now marks the second consecutive contract that Local 4790 firefighters have been the only public safety union to be threatened with full time layoffs and have responded each time with concessions to the village to avoid these layoffs". Said Nieves. We hope this has proven to village officials that it's not all about money for us, but that we care about our members and the community we serve.
