Click on this link to see how the Joliet Fire Department works for Joliet.
Joliet has Paramedics in every station. Peoria has only been "cleared" to have two stations function as Paramedic.
The Joliet Fire Department has 9 ambulances for Paramedic care. The Peoria Fire Department doesn't even own an ambulance.

Quite a bit different than Peoria.
