Normal Fire Department staffs three paramedic ambulances, one at each of our fire stations. Each Normal Fire Department ambulance is staffed with a two-person paramedic crew. Additionally, a reserve ambulance is housed at #2 Fire Station and is used for special events, or to provide emergency medical care during major incidents.

Due to the amount of training and equipment required to operate as a paramedic level service, a Normal Fire Department ambulance is, in essence, a mobile emergency room equipped to handle virtually any medical event or trauma.
