    Default Chicago Ride Along


    I'm going to have a lot of time to kill in chicago on Sept. 7th, and I was curious if there are any firehouses in Chicago that would let me hang out or even ride along with them? I wasn't sure what the Depts. view on that would be, or what the appropriate channel was for me to go through.. So I thought I'd ask you fine gentlemen!

    Any thoughts?

    I would imagine they would give you a tour of the station and rigs. A ride-along seems like a liability issue.

    Forget about any ridealongs. The Commissioner has put a halt to ride alongs. If a company does allow you, then that officer is putting his you know what on the line.
