Specialized Training

All career members are trained as Paramedics and certified firefighters by the State of Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshal. In addition to staffing the Advanced Life-Support Ambulances the fire engines and fire trucks are equipped with Advanced Life-Support equipment. This means if an ambulance is already out on a call the engine or quint can go to the next call and begin life-saving treatment before the ambulance from a further station arrives.
