NEW TRUCK CEREMONY—A FIRE SERVICE TRADITION
The Illinois Valley Fire District is pleased to announce that a new rescue truck will be placed in service at 0900 Thursday October 23rd. This vehicle replaces an apparatus that is over 20 years old.
There will be a ceremonial pushing in of the apparatus into the station by Illinois Valley Fire District Board members, volunteers and careers staff.
The pushing in of apparatus tradition comes from the horse-drawn apparatus days. Upon returning from a call, the horses were unhitched and the apparatus was push back into the station by the firefighters and returned to service for the next call.
The public and press are invited to join us in celebrating our improved response to the District... and a bit for fire service tradition.

The survey takes less than five minutes. The information you provide is invaluable. Please take a few minutes and tell us what you think. The community we serve is an intricate part of shaping our future.
