Mission Statement

The Specialized Rescue Team continue to train for the usual rescue situations, such as vertical (rope rescue), confined space, below grade (trench), and building collapse.

Each of our members received approximately 36 hours of regularly scheduled training throughout the year. Captain Vic Stachelski is the leader of this team.

CART - Combined Area Response TeamJoliet, along with the Lockport and Bolingbrook Fire Depts., make up the Combined Agency Response Team known as the Green Team, and continues to be designated in the “Level A” category.

This means that we have the training needed and the resources available to currently respond at the Task Force Level to technical rescue emergencies within the State of Illinois.

As with all of the specialized teams our membership fluctuates through the years. We are very fortunate as most of our members belong to other specialized teams thus bringing their added experience. The Specialized Rescue Team is now staffed with 14 members.
