[ARCHIVED] Lombard Fire Department Acquires New Engine and Ambulance

The Village of Lombard has purchased a new fire engine and ambulance that supports the Fire Department’s commitment to providing community members with the highest level of service. 

The new 2021 Pierce Enforcer Pumper Fire Engine was placed in service at Fire Station 44, 2020 S. Highland Ave., on Oct. 30, 2021. The 2021 Horton Ambulance will be placed in service at Fire Station 45, 50 E. St. Charles Rd on Nov. 5, 2021. The Fire Department’s engine and ambulance committees made design changes to each of these vehicles that better suit the operational needs of the fire department.

“Our department welcomes these new vehicles that will enable our firefighter/paramedics to provide the best fire and emergency services for our community,” said Fire Chief Rick Sander. “We are extremely grateful for the continued support of our Village President, Board of Trustees, and residents.” 

These vehicles are being replaced as part of the Village’s fleet replacement plan. The new engine will replace a 17-year-old Pierce Pumper, and the new ambulance will replace a 19- year-old Horton Ambulance—both of which are being sold. The goal of this plan is to ensure that fire department vehicles are replaced when necessary to maintain a safe, reliable, and innovative fleet. 

Lombard’s Fire Department remains one of the busiest departments in DuPage County. In 2020, the Fire Department responded to 6,961 calls for service, with the majority of calls requiring emergency medical assistance. 

The Lombard Village Board approved the purchase of these vehicles in FY 2020.
