    I know South Holland used to also. Maybe Libertyville, one of those suburban departments is combined police/ems. It was on the blue line not long ago
    Definitely not Libertyville. i just tested with them a few months ago.

    Are you looking to get on a department that requires an EMT-B License or are you planning just to keep it up to date? I know some poeple volunteer for their fire department or work part time on an ambulance to keep their license hours.
    I am want to keep my license up to date. I have NREMT licensees as well as state so I want to try and get on some type of department that will help me with the hours. The only problem with a lot of the volunteer agencies around Chicagoland is they want you to also be a firefighter as well. Hoping if I move more rural they will allow me to only volunteer as an EMT

    I can Imagine, I had a relative that used to work there years ago.

    started a topic Illinois agencies requiring EMT license

    Illinois agencies requiring EMT license

    I was wondering are there any Illinois agency that require their officer to be certified as EMT/EMT-B? I know Glencoe, Quad City Airport, and Rosemont are trained as firefighter/EMT/Police at a minimum. The only other agency I know of is NIU and brookfield zoo. Wondering if there are any other municipalities or county agencies that have that requirement. Or at least have some officer trained.
