Joliet Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Joliet now has a three city coins. One has the city seal depicting Joliet as the crossroads of Mid-America. Another has the police department seal and the third has the fire department seal – to be used for recognition of police officers and firefighters.

They are for achievements and excellence as opposed to a certificate or a piece of paper.
