The Communications Division is staffed by four full-time and four part-time members. Communications is responsible for answering emergency and non-emergency phone calls and dispatching the fire and EMS units to the emergencies that are received.
In addition to dispatching for Pleasantview emergencies, we are also responsible for the coordination of MABAS Division 10 East multi-alarm incidents for the Villages of Brookfield, Forestview, La Grange, La Grange Park, Lyons, McCook, Pleasantview, Riverside, and Western Springs. These incidents include fires, medical responses, hazardous materials, technical rescue, water/ice rescue, investigators, and tanker responses. We are also responsible for the inter-state and intra-state responses for all of MABAS Division 10.
