Recruitment

What if no one answered the call?

A storm breaks out unexpectedly around Utica, Illinois.  Lightening causes a home to catch fire.  Cars crash in the blinding rain.  People of all ages call for help.  What would happen if no one answered the call?  Who would respond to protect the lives and property of the community.  

Every day, in every community, emergency responders answer the call of our families, friends, neighbors and visitors to the community who are in need of assistance.  From car accidents to heart attacks, from structure fires to technical rescue, emergency responders are there to protect lives and property.

Emergency responders are a special type of people, with many different reasons for answering the "Call of Duty".  Some like the challenges and the adrenaline rush, while others like to sharpen their emergency skills and techniques.  Every one of them answers the call, so that they can help someone in need.

Today's emergency responders do far more than put out fires or bandage wounds.  Emergency responders are the first line of defense in natural and man-made disasters.  They respond to vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents, specialized rescue situations and a vast array of emergency medical complaints.
