Romeoville FD & EMA coming to the site

Thanks to Brandon Street from the Romeoville Fire Department for inviting us to visit and helping us to get everything we need to post the Romeoville Fire Department (RFD) and introducing us to the Romeoville Emergency Management Agency (REMA) so we could include their facilities and equipment as well. Three RFD and one REMA stations are coming with 23 pieces of equipment.

  • The RFD fleet consists of Pierce engines, a Pierce tower ladder and a Pierce HDR along with Medtec and Horton Type I medic units.
  • The REMA fleet consists of a variety of pieces including many hand-me-down units that the REMA personnel have customized and refurbished to suit their needs breathing new life into the apparatus.
