We are happy and proud to announce the acquisition of a NEW AMBULANCE!
We have taken delivery of a brand new Chevrolet Type III ambulance built by AEV. This unit will be replacing our 2001 International Road Rescue ambulance, which has over 94,000 miles on it.
We were able to buy this unit as a demonstrator, saving the District about $20,000.
The final purchase price was $147,000, which does not include final striping, radio, and other minor expenses. We hope to have this unit in service by May 17th.
Antique Fire Engine
We are getting going on restoring the 1936 GMC fire engine that was the district's first motorized fire apparatus. For more information, progress updates, or to make a donation, please click here.

Beware of Phone Solicitations!
Residents of the Hinckley Fire District have reported receiving phone calls seeking donations for a "retired & disabled firefighters fund" of some kind. The people seeking these donations indicated that some of the donations are sent to the Hinckley Fire District.
The Hinckley Fire District does NOT, and has NOT, ever solicited donations over the phone. We are not affiliated with and do not receive funds from any organization that conducts phone solicitation.
Thinking of Demolition?
Let us use your house-- get a tax break!
If you've recently purchased a piece of property and would like to demolish a building on it, consider letting the Fire Department train in it first. WE DON'T HAVE TO BURN THE BUILDING DOWN TO BENEFIT FROM TRAINING IN AN OLD STRUCTURE.
Live fire training is typically conducted in these buildings, with strictest adherence to safety standards. There is no liability for the owners of these structures to firefighters who train in them.
Firefighters can train in search and rescue, ventilation, forcible entry and firefighter survival without burning the building.
For more information call 815-286-7711.
If you have, or are thinking about getting Internet Phone Service, please check out our Public Safety page for important information you should know.
