Station 84

Station 84With a remodel completed in 2008, this station offers many amenities for the public as well as the 5 personnel (one Lieutenant and four Firefighter / Paramedics) who staff it daily. Frequently known as the station where we hold our "Fifth Grade Program" for Palatine grade school students, this station has our 3 story training tower as well as an extra 2 story garage that houses additional vehicles. During the addition, the station was essentially doubled in size, adding a complete new wing east of the bay floor. This allowed for new meeting and training rooms, a larger fitness room for the health of our firefighters, and new living quarters for the on-duty staff.

Training Division

Training FacilityFormerly referred to as Station 17, this station is the home of our training facility. It features a 3-story drill tower with a roof that has removable panels that can be cut for ventilation training. The tower is used by firefighters to practice hose advancement, ladder placement, rescue operations, and other skills. There is also a drafting pit that allows us to recycle water while practicing pump skills. Additionally, the station features a large classroom that is equipped with a video conference system. Purchased with a federal grant, this system allows us to conduct briefings and classroom training with all members being able to stay at their own stations. This improves response times by allowing companies to stay available in their own districts and saves money by allowing an instructor to conduct a class once instead of several times per day. Our Division Chief of Training also has his office here at Station 84.
