  • I cannot say enough about the friendliness of the Firefighters and paramedics at Station 18. I know it must be difficult with people always wanting to look around. We were given the best tour by the nicest of people. They were so good to my children and showed us so much more than we imagined. I was able to buy a T-shirt and take many pictures. Thank you so much Station 18 for making this crazy fan so happy and for all that you do for the city of Chicago.
  • Station 18 fire department went above and beyond my expectations. My roommate was with our dog when she had bicycle accident and needed to go to the hospital. The fire department willingly watched over our dog at the fire station until I was able to come pick him up after making sure she was okay. I am forever thankful for what they did for us and for their kindness and understanding. Thank you x1000.
