First Baptist Church of Maryville I want to say ―Thank You‖ to the First Baptist Church of Maryville members, Maryville Fire Department and all the law enforcement agencies that assisted on the Sunday morning of March 8 when the life of Pastor Dr. Fred Winters was taken. I want to acknowledge the actions of the church members that apprehended the gunman prior to the officers’ arrival. Their bold and courageous behavior secured the scene and prevented injury to others. The rapid response from the Troy and Glen Carbon Police Departments to assist Maryville police officers was critical in bringing control to the incident and preserving the scene for an investigation. The Maryville Fire Department was exemplary and professional in providing medical treatment to the victims and in assisting to secure the premises. The church leaders and members were extraordinary with their cooperative spirit and patience. The assistance from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and the Illinois State Police helped solidify a leadership team to begin the investigation. The Illinois State Police at a request by the Maryville Police Department accepted to lead the investigation due to its magnitude. All the departments called off-duty investigators and officers to assist in the investigation that involved over 150 interviews and victims at three different hospitals. The Illinois State Police Crime Scene personnel were very diligent in collecting and preserving evidence for prosecutorial purposes. On Sunday, March 15 at the request of the Maryville Police Department, twenty-four different law enforcement agencies from four counties stood guard as a sign of support and in honor of Pastor Winters during the morning services at the First Baptist Church of Maryville. This action brought a feeling of security to church members and a feeling of affection to the officers. An abundance of church attendees expressed a ―Thank You‖ to the officers. The departments are too numerous to mention but I express great gratitude for their participation. Pastor Winters was the Maryville Police Chaplin and a supporter of law enforcement. Chief Rich Schardan of the Maryville Police Department leaves this comment to him, ―Fred, my friend, meet me at the Gates. I’ll have a few coupons and we’ll play some hoops. You are missed.‖ Officer Update Officer Jared Missey has successfully completed the Field Training Officer program to the Solo Patrol Phase. He was trained by Officer Brandon Ponce and Officer Tony Manley under the guidance of Sgt. Rob Carpenter. Catch a Kid The Maryville Police Department will continue the Catch a Kid program this summer. Officers may carry a ball glove and play catch with children during their patrol duties. The officers will distribute a limited supply of Wiffle ball and bat sets along with additional Wiffle balls. The program was well received the last two summers. Be Careful Spring is here and summer will be arriving. Outside activities are increasing. Drivers of vehicles need to be alert for people that are jogging and walking, bicycling, and children playing. Although the roadways are intended for vehicles, people utilize them when sidewalks are not available and children play in them for recreational activities. Please be careful and enjoy the summer.

The Fire Department had 68 responses in February. 57 were for medical service with the remaining being for fire/ rescue. The Fire Department had 65 responses in March. 45 were for medical service with the remaining being for fire/rescue. Congratulations to Ryan Anderson, John Canull and Danny Gulledge who successfully passed their paramedic exams and were recently licensed as paramedics. This will greatly enhance our ambulance service. Good job guys! Work continues on the Training Facility. The containers have been stacked and finishing touches are being completed. When finished this facility will be an excellent place to train not only Maryville firefighters but personnel from surrounding communities as well. The Fire Department Ladies’ Auxiliary will be holding a ―Scotch Doubles‖ bowling fund raiser on Saturday, May 9th at 8 p.m. at Camelot Bowl in Collinsville (registration table opens at 7 p.m.). The cost is $25 per couple for four games. There are 3 couples per lane with 6 couples per pair of lanes. There will be attendance prizes and 50/50 drawings.

Homecoming Association President, Jimmy Johnson has set up a ―Facebook‖ account ―Fans of Maryville Firemen’s Homecoming‖.

FEATURE SERIES “The Departments of the Village of Maryville” Volume #2 MARYVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Village of Maryville first established a Fire Department in October 1904 as a volunteer fire suppression service. It began with a horse drawn engine that was housed and manned mainly by workers from the local coal mines, whose families at the time made up a majority of the residents of the Village. In 1916 a firehouse was built at the corner of Donk and Zupan Streets. An addition was added to the building at a later date to house the police department and village hall. In 1972 expansion was completed at the firehouse to add 2 more bays to accommodate additional equipment. This building served as the fire station until 1994 when the new state of the art station was built at 300 N. Donk, the site of the old Maryville Elementary School. The building at Donk and Zupan still stands today and is the home of the Maryville Historical Museum. In the 1940’s the Maryville Homecoming Association was formed and began holding annual picnics to raise monies to help support the Fire Department. This event still takes place each summer and is always held the 2nd weekend in July. Proceeds from this are now used to support the Fire Department’s Ambulance Service. The Homecoming Association has purchased several ambulances and much of the equipment that is used today to serve the community. For years ambulance service was provided to the Village first by the local funeral homes in Collinsville and later by Laughlin Ambulance Service. In 1980 it was decided that the Village had need for its own ambulance service, so the Fire Department also began providing this service. This started with 5 volunteer EMT’s and 2 used ambulances. In 1987 the service was

upgraded to an ILS (Intermediate Life Support) service when several members obtained their license. This enabled the staff to administer IV’s and give more advanced treatment. In 1994 the service was upgraded to ALS (Advanced Life Support) or Paramedic. Today 2 fully equipped ambulances with the latest technology and equipment are staffed by 3 full time firefighter / paramedics and 12 part time either EMT’s or paramedics. The Fire Department, with DCEO grant fund assistance, is currently constructing a Fire Fighter Training Facility. The facility is located on Village owned ground near our water tower. The goal for building this training facility is to improve the skills and knowledge of the fire fighters by creating a more realistic fire fighting environment. Presently, very few dedicated training areas are established in the immediate area. By establishing an area to provide realistic and challenging props we can improve the level of competency and overall skills that are vital to our fire fighters and the neighboring mutual aid departments we work closely with. This training area will have several props initially with room to add more in the future. These props include a Three Story Live Burn Building, a 25’ x 25’ Auto Extrication Pad, and a 12’ x 12’ Class A Fuel Vehicle Fire Prop. This facility will benefit the Maryville Fire Department and its neighboring mutual-aid departments by assisting in preparing fire fighters with adequate training in realistic environments. This facility, with permission, will be open to all fire departments or other public safety agencies that wish to use it. The public will also benefit by having fire fighters better trained and more proficient in their skills. Today the Village continues to provide not only fire suppression service, emergency medical services, rescue services, fire prevention education and inspections, and responds to hazardous materials incidents. The Department is served by a combination of 30+ paid per call members and 3 full time career Firefighter/Paramedics. The station is staffed from 6 am – 6 pm 7 days a week by full time and part time employees with the remainder of the day being staffed by volunteers who are notified by pagers and respond from their homes in the event of an emergency. The Department protects approximately 10,000 residents residing within 8 square miles that includes the Village of Maryville and the unincorporated surrounding Maryville Fire Protection District, a separate governing body. The Department operates out of 1 station located at 300 N. Donk Avenue utilizing 3 fire engines, 1 rescue unit, 2 paramedic ambulances and 1 staff/utility vehicle.
