The Skokie Fire Department understands that in critical moments, effective communication can be a matter of life or death. That's why we equip our ambulances with this handheld translator device that can translate more than 84 languages. From assessing symptoms to providing vital instructions, this device ensures language barriers do not prevent Skokie paramedics from delivering the highest standard of care to the residents and visitors of our community.

This Rumsey & Co. 1860s Hand Pumper was purchased in 1881 by the Niles Centre Volunteer Fire Company (predecessor to the Skokie Fire Department). The hand pumper was pulled to the scene by firefighters or horses. The pumper was operated manually by firefighters who pumped the handles on both sides of the wagon up and down to pump water onto a fire. The Niles Centre Volunteer Fire Company's purchase of the hand pumper marked an important milestone in the Village's transition from an ineffective "bucket brigade" fire protection system to an organized firefighting force with modern equipment.

A Skokie firefighter jumps from a truck ladder onto a Life Net as part of a local elementary school demonstration. Many fire departments used Life Nets as a means to rescue victims trapped in the upper levels of multi-story buildings. The use of Life Nets fell out of practice in the early 1980s because of the potential of injury or death to both the victim and the firefighters.

Here, a Fire Apparatus Engineer uses Reserve Truck 16's ladder to place traffic cones at specific locations on Fire Station 16's roof. This exercise will strengthen ladder placement accuracy, making it possible for personnel to safely climb up onto rooftops to conduct firefighting operations.
