The North Palos Fire Protection District is proud to announce the long-anticipated delivery of their new Aerial Ladder Truck. The 2022 E-One 110’ Quint Aerial Ladder was ordered in October of 2020 after the district received a Vehicle Acquisition Grant award from FEMA through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program.

The grant award of $727,272.73 was the largest award in the highly competitive Vehicle Acquisition category within Illinois during the five previous (2015-2020) program years.

The $1,006,291 purchase price of the truck along with essential equipment has been completely covered through both the grant award and a generous $400,000 donation from a private donor.

The new truck is planned to be placed in service at the end of the month and will replace the current 2001 Aerial Ladder as the front-line truck. As a requirement of the grant, the district’s reserve 1987 Ladder Truck can no longer be used in emergency operations and is being donated to the Moraine Valley Community College Fire Academy to be used in the training of student firefighters.

A nice looking, well spec'ed rig is only as good as the crews assigned and you've got some of the best
