The Antioch Fire Department and First Fire District is a volunteer department at the northern edge of Illinois in Lake County Quad 2. They have three stations with many pieces of apparatus and a new engine expected in January. Once an all Pirsch department, they still have two Pirsch units on the roster, one of which will be put up for auction when the new engine arrives. Each station houses a brush rig and an engine or tanker with at least 2,000 gallons of water.

Today the apparatus consists of US Tanker, Alexis, Pierce, and 3D. Station 1 houses the Quad 2 rehab unit, the Quad 2 air boat, and a new Quad 2 resource dubbed the Fast Attack Response Truck.
