Like many other agencies across the region we mourn the loss of Rob Dowling, EMS Director at Franciscan Crown Point.

Thank you for your time and effort that you put into assisting HFD becoming who we are today as Firefighters, EMR's, and EMT's.

Rest easy Rob.

As the EMS Director at Franciscan Crown Point, Rob Dowling was not just a mentor and leader, but a great friend to us at CPFR.

Rob, you will be greatly missed but your influence will be felt for years to come as generations of Paramedics and EMTs benefit from your dedication to the profession.

Rest easy.

On this morning, 20 years ago, 265 people woke up in preparation for their morning flights. Roughly 2,600 people woke up preparation for work. 343 firefighters woke up preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers woke up in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics woke up in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:28 am Sept 11, 2001.

In one single moment life may never be the same. Today as you wake up in preparation for your 'daily' routine, kiss the ones you love, and never take one second of your life for granted. Because, in just 10 seconds, they may not be coming home, and your life may be changed forever.

Today, we remember the sacrifice for our country. Today, we remember that all give some, and SOME GAVE IT ALL!

Today, we remember those families involved that lost loved ones that fateful day. Even though we may not know who they are by name, we all keep them close to our hearts.

Today, we remember.....exactly were we were when the events unfolded.

Even though it is 20 years later. One thing is for sure in any Americans eyes and hearts. That day will be....

NEVER FORGOTTEN!

Some great safety information from our brothers and sisters at Dyer Fire Department!

Some great safety information from our brothers and sisters at Dyer Fire Department!

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR MOTORISTS APPROACHING ROADWAY EMERGENCY SCENES

• If at all possible, avoid the area and take an alternate route. Do not make an illegal turn to avoid the incident, but instead plan a different route when you hear there is an issue.
• SLOW DOWN as you approach and pass the incident. Remain alert for unexpected occurrences, as this is a different situation than normal roadway driving.
• MOVE OVER any time you approach a stopped emergency vehicle. Move your vehicle over a lane away from the incident, as long as it is safe to do so. This gives first responders room to work on the incident.
• Look for and obey all temporary traffic control signs and directions from first responders, including lane closures.
• Never attempt to go around an emergency scene on the shoulder, drive through it, or turn around to avoid it or the traffic queue. These actions put you, other motorists, and first responders at risk of death and injury.
• Do not take photos or video of the incident as you pass it and do not post on social media.
• Do not pick up your cell phone to notify friends, family, or others of the emergency scene or that you will be delayed.
• Remain alert, even if you have to sit in traffic.

Our thoughts our with our Brothers at Crown Point Fire/Rescue......

We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Chief (retired) Mark Baumgardner, Sr., a 34-year member of Crown Point Fire-Rescue.

"Senior" served as Fire Chief and held many other roles from Firefighter-Paramedic to Division Chief of Operations and EMS. As a long-time educator, Chief Baumgardner launched and shaped the careers of countless EMS professionals in The Region.

Chief Baumgardner started his 38-year career with Independence Hill Volunteer Fire Department (Merrillville) in 1979 and was a member of the second-ever paramedic class in Lake County. He went on to become a member of Crown Rescue which eventually merged with the Crown Point Fire Department.

We will always remember him for his commitment to the department, our membership, and his family. Never one to turn down an assignment or a request for help, Mark was forever dedicated to the people in his life and the communities he served.

Chief Baumgardner is survived by his wife, 2 children, and 2 grandchildren. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Memorial services are being planned and an announcement will be made with details for those wishing to pay respects.
