RPD: Eastbound Harrison Avenue between 20th Street and Ohio Parkway is shutdown due to slick conditions and numerous accidents. Use caution at the North Second/Spring Creek interchanges as that area is also extremely slick. Drive slowly and carefully this morning!


We all knew it was coming.  The first snow fall, brings a lot of accidents.

Several accidents are being reported all over the area.

The worst ones are on the bypass  and also business 20, I-39 and also on I-90. Other roads that are being reported that are very slick: Caledonia road, N Second, Perryville, Harrison, Mulford, Bridge st, N Main, RT 75, Pretty much every main road is slick this morning via RS fan reports.

Several cars in the ditches, some have rolled over.  Extrication was needed at a one of the scenes,  at Montague and 20.

Injuries have been reported, but I have yet to hear any life threatening injuries. Sounds like most are non life threatening injuries.

Please allow extra time to travel this morning, drive slow and safe

Rockford Scanner™: The North Park Fire Protection District has added a rescue tax to the upcoming ballot. If passed, the additional dollars would help support equipment maintenance and provide volunteers with on-call pay.

More info at  https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofNPFire/

The North Park Fire Protection District has added a rescue tax to the upcoming ballot. If passed, the additional dollars would help support equipment maintenance and provide volunteers with on-call pay.

Despite what many think – we receive our funding only from property taxes from residents, billing of non-residents, through the Illinois Tollway billing contract and a relatively small amount comes from the state in the form of Foreign Fire Tax (projected at $44,400 for this fiscal year).

We receive no funds from the county’s public safety tax, from sales tax in any of the areas we serve, etc.

And in no way, shape or form is our referendum a veiled attempt to provide a fire district tax funded ambulance service.

Our ambulance service will continue to remain provided by a private contractor at no cost to taxpayers unless utilized, which will result in direct billing for their services.

Voting yes on our referendum would allow us to continue to be able to insure we have top notch equipment and vehicles, pay our volunteers as true paid on call firefighters and save for future large capital expenses.

“Scene in Loves Park. I know there is 2 total fire trucks and the fire chief is around the corner of the building. Approx. 1:30pm. No signs of smoke, but several fire fighters were racing to the roof of the building. Not sure of the address but it is right next to the subway and grease monkey on E Riverside.
