Mission Statement

The JFD SOS Medics will continually provide the Joliet Police Department SOS and SWAT teams with highly trained and experienced Will Grundy Paramedics at both training and actual incidents.

The Joliet Fire Department Special Operations Medic Team accompanies the JPD Special Operations Squad ( SOS ), and Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) on all high risk incidents. These incidents include high risk warrants, hostage situations, barricaded gunmen, terrorist activities, and any training through out the year.

Through our partnership with the JPD teams, it is a courtesy to provide these highly trained operators with the finest paramedics in the EMS system.  We also accompany the teams to monthly training, in which a different topic is covered.
