Excerpts from mysuburbanlife.com:

The East Joliet Fire Protection District showed off its newest piece of equipment Sunday, a Ferrara Cinder MVP Rescue Pumper. This unit functions with the combined capabilities of a squad for specialized rescue jobs and an engine.  The rescue/pumper cost about $685,000, which Fire Chief Robert Scholtes said was a little more than what would have been the cost for the two separate vehicles, but it will ultimately help firefighters have everything they need when they respond to emergency situations.

The East Joliet Fire Protection District began in 1940 as a volunteer department to cover the unincorporated areas of Joliet Township.
