02/22/09 141 W - + 15 - 15 Videography From Chicago

Dave Statter surfaces this strong video from Steve Redick of a 2-111 fire in Chicago on Saturday. The audio includes radio traffic from the fire. It's a well-shot and well-produced clip, maybe a model for such things? See others on his YouTube channel. Mr. Redick, a CFD fire alarm operator, also has a photo site that we've blogged about. It includes superb fire and apparatus photographs from him and his CFD father, and dating back to the 1950s. Lots of vintage rigs featured, and nearly all in color! Visit his photo site, and scroll down to see the galleries.
