Acknowledgments & References


I would personally like to thank each and every member of the Carpentersville Fire Department, both past and present, with help as well as stories and assistance with this history project. I truly believe every member will somehow relate to and enjoy this history. Hopefully everyone can see themselves in this history in some way or another, because without all of you this would not be history.
