BARTLETT, Ill. — The Bartlett Fire Protection District is placing new signs on its fire engines and ladder truck that say "Paramedics," indicating that these emergency response vehicles have "Advanced Life Support" capabilities.

These vehicles have the obvious fire suppression capabilities that most people are aware of, but they also have fully trained paramedics and the paramedic equipment. The personnel and equipment strategy has been in place in Bartlett since 2003 and is considered a best practice in the fire service industry.
