Joliet IN Buys First Fire Engine in Five Years

Joliet (IN) is buying a fire engine for the first time in five years. The new engine replaces a 1994 fire truck.

The E-One Cyclone II Fire Engine costs $478,000, but the city will pay $415,000 by trading in three pieces of equipment.

The city did not go out for bids on the fire engine. Fire Chief Joseph Formhals said the city’s other fire engines are E-Ones, and having different makes in the fleet would create more expense and problems for the motor maintenance garage because the city would have to stock more parts and repair crews would have to learn how to work on fire trucks made by other manufacturers.
