Each summer the Joliet Fire Department receives between 50 and 60 requests to attend community
block parties. Our on-duty crews try to accommodate as many parties on a first call first serve basis.
The fire station closest to the event is the equipment of choice. Upon arrival the crews will let the children (and parents) get up close and personal with the trucks, pass out sticker badges and answer any questions about the equipment we carry.
Our units remain in-service and may need to leave if an emergency arises. Please give us at least 30 days notice to arrange the event.
To schedule your fire department visit, contact the Joliet Fire Department at 724-3500.
There is no cost to the homeowners but please call early to reserve your spot.
