Engine 17 is a 2011 Pierce Saber Pumper, which is the new frontline engine at #3 Firehouse.
E17 has a 1250 GPM Waterous pump, pre-piped class-A foam system, 5000W generator, and a state-of-the-art cab capable of carrying 6 firefighters.
Normal Fire Department staffs three paramedic ambulances, one at each of our fire stations. Each Normal Fire Department ambulance is staffed with a two-person paramedic crew.
Due to the amount of training and equipment required to operate as a paramedic level service, a Normal Fire Department ambulance is, in essence, a mobile emergency room equipped to handle virtually any medical event or trauma.
