Gary Fire Department Engine Co. 5 Working Out of a Homeless Shelter

A recent youtube video posted by nwitimestv tells the story of Gary Fire Department Engine Co. 5.  Gary Engine Co. 5 is currently being housed at a Calumet homeless shelter.  This appears to not be a temporary home as GFD Engine Co. 5 has been operating out of this homeless shelter for the past three years.  Chicagofirewire.com is sad to see our brothers living without a firehouse.  Gary Firefighters have also not had a raise in over nine years.  No cost of living raises, and working out of a homeless shelter is no life for the men and women of the Gary Fire Department.  Description of the youtube video posted below.

“For nearly three years, Gary firefighters with Engine No. 5 have been living and working outside of their station located at 41st Ave. and Washington St.”
