Illinois Fire Service Institute


Fire House and Auxiliary Fire House

IFSI's brick firehouse closely resembles a real fire house and is used to help indoctrinate new recruits in Basic Firefighter Academy to what it is like on the job. It is home to the two frontline engines and ladder truck. The new building on the west side houses the frontline squad and our reserve snorkel, tower ladder and squad/ambulance.
