Time well spent with "Civil Defence Officers" from South and West Cork Ireland. Cork is the third largest city/county in Ireland by population of 125,657. The area incorporates urban and rural communities, as well as one of the world's largest natural harbors that lead outwards toward the Celtic Sea. Being a Sister City to Cook County, Roselle was honored to extend a warm welcome as one of the Officers' many stops including a few fire departments in Chicago. Irish Officials spent the day learning about Roselle Fire Department's response and capabilities. Because of the major gas leak incident in Bloomingdale, department resources were spoken for. With this said, Irish Officers' were able to witness the West Suburban Fire Rescue Alliance response to the gas leak. They were astounded by the efficiency, and the amount of resources that are available to Roselle and our surrounding communities.
