Lincolnwood has placed a fire station at an assisted living facility, reports Chicago Tribune.
Many emergency calls originate from the assisted living facility. The station houses an ambulance and living quarters for two fire department paramedics.
The station’s personnel will serve the Carrington and nearby Lincolnwood Place, another assisted living facility.
Creating the ambulance bay and space for paramedics was a goal for the Carrington’s ownership group of South Bay Partners, LLC and LAMB Properties when the facility was originally proposed to the village.
