We wanted to recognize and congratulate Firefighter/EMT’s Emma Sitki and Matthew Isley. Both members began taking the Basic Operations Firefighter class back in August. The class was instructed by the Illinois Fire Service Institute and was a blended class. The blended classes are instructed both online as well as hands on days, which was hosted by Sherman Fire Protection District. After 180 hours of hard work and dedication, both members graduated today at a ceremony held in Sherman.

Congratulations Lady Railers!!!

It is with sadness and regret that we announce the passing of retired career firefighter Roger Sutton. Roger passionately served the district and community for 32 years, retiring in 2004. Roger was the kind of person you almost never encountered in a bad mood and if he was you didn’t know it. Always having a big smile on his face and giving the younger guys a hard time. Even after retiring he would occasionally stop in to chat and tell stories. We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Sutton family.

UPDATE: Services will be held Monday November 6, from 5-7pm for visitation. A uniform walk through will be at 6pm at Holland Berry & Bennett Funeral Home in Lincoln. A memorial service will follow visitation at 7 pm.

On 8/21/23 at 9:17pm Lincoln Rural, Lincoln City, Logan County Dive Team, and Logan County Sheriffs Office for 2 missing kayakers on Salt Creek. Logan County EMA was requested to respond as well provide assistance with drone operations. Due to not knowing how far down the creek they may have been, Middletown FD was also requested to stand by at the bridge west of Middletown as well. Callers reported having lost contact with them over an hour prior to calling 911. Units staged at the Rocky Ford bridge on 1400 St, southwest of Lincoln. Searches were conducted along the creek utilizing 2 drones with infrared cameras. Just short of an hour into operations communications was reestablished with the 2 individuals who were missing. The individuals were reunited with the rest of their party with no injuries. Lincoln Rural would like to thank all assisting agencies for their response.

While we can all agree it was hot today, unfortunately it has not slowed things down. Starting at 545 this morning units were dispatched for a report of a car vs semi accident around the 124 mile marker on I-55. The occupant of the vehicle was stuck inside and had to be extricated by personnel. The occupant was removed and transported to the hospital in stable condition. Following the vehicle accident personnel then ran 2 other EMS calls.

At 1227 units were dispatched to provide auto aid to the Middletown Fire Protection District for a structure fire at the library/museum, which is also listed as the oldest building in Logan County. LRFPD responded with our ladder truck, tanker, and utility truck to assist.

Monday night was our monthly EMS training with the topic of pediatric emergencies. It just so happened that we got to have some real “patients” to help out. Thank you to Tayah, McKenzie, Addalyn, & Caden for being such good patients, and pretty darn cute too.

Amongst all the crazy that was yesterday we did encounter a few calls that had a common issue. When you see an emergency vehicle such as a fire truck, police car etc. or IDOT blocking an area doing traffic control, it is not just for the fun of doing it. There most likely is a legitimate safety reason for doing so. While nobody can disagree that with I-55 shut down due to the power lines at the 133 was inconvenient, it is no excuse to try and drive around all the cars that are trying to exit the interstate by using the shoulder as several did. This type of actions cause other accidents or possibly striking personnel on scene. The pictures show exactly the point, around 1am units were sent where a semi had ran into the back of an IDOT dump truck that was blocking north bound lanes at the 55/155 split. About 15 minutes later units were dispatched to the 133 for a vehicle that went around the blocked lanes and ran into the power lines that were across the highway. For ALL personnel that are working on the roadways, DO NOT try and go around or through an area that is being blocked by emergency or highway personnel, it is for our safety and yours. Thankfully no serious injuries occurred, but could have been much worse.
