Quint 462 runs out of Station 2. It is a 2008 Pierce Velocity with a 75' rear mounted aerial ladder on a full length chassis. Since the 75' ladder only requires one set of outriggers, Libertyville has added storage space at their disposal where the front jack s would be for a larger aerial. Larry Shapiro photo

Libertyville is a 100% Pierce department with regards to suppression units and their five ambulances are a mix of Medtec and Road Rescue.

Libertyville Fire Station 3
