In Memoriam


Albert W. Schlick III

On January 5, 2021, SRT lost its Division 5 Operations Chief with the passing of Deputy Chief Albert W. Schlick III. Deputy Chief Schlick served as SRT’s Division 5 Operations Chief from 2016 – 2021 and was, before that, the Division 4 Hazardous Materials Team Leader. Throughout all his promotions, he continued to be a valuable member of the SRT Hazardous Materials Team and made innumerable contributions to SRT. His passion for the fire service, historical knowledge and sense of humor made him an extraordinary person to work with.


Mark Robert Amore

On April 16, 2020, SRT lost a member of both its Mechanics and Sonar Teams with the passing of Mark Robert Amore. As a firefighter/paramedic with the Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Fire Protection District and, before that, a Lieutenant with the McHenry Township Fire Protection District, Mark was an active member of SRT for many years.  His love for heavy equipment and machinery made him an asset to the Mechanics Team and his avid boating experience brought valuable knowledge to the Sonar Team as both a boat operator and sonar technician.  His dedication to the fire service was obvious to all those that knew him.
