Aurora fire Capt. Mike Ackman said that with the population growth on the city’s eastern and northern edges, the city is planning to start construction on three new firehouses by 2018
The facility has long been a dream of city officials, who have said the police and fire departments lacked adequate training space
While Aurora hasn’t had many ice rescues, fire crews are hoping to raise awareness about the risks associated with ice.
Aurora firefighters were called to a report of a structure fire at about 4 a.m. May 22 on the 1800 block of North Carson Street near Montview and Sable boulevards. One woman found at the site of the blaze was ransported to a local hospital, where she later was pronounced dead.
“She was blue and looked pretty lifeless to me, so I did a quick assessment. She wasn’t breathing, and I didn’t find a pulse,” Klein said.
Radio traffic from last Friday’s shooting in Aurora, showed emergency personnel struggling to grasp both the scope of the tragedy and mobilize a response.
