Happy New Year. It is cold in Peoria. Very cold. Polar vortex and global warming combining to make the midwest very cold.
Great news regarding the Peoria Fire Department--
January 1, 2018--
This full moon lighting up the Illinois River and Peoria tonight on the first day of 2018 is the largest and brightest – supermoon you have ever seen.
But even bigger news than the supermoon is that today the PFD Rescue 1 Engine in downtown Peoria is offering independent Advanced Life Support for the first time ever. The Firefighter Paramedics will now be able to respond to a 911 call and offer the people of Peoria Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support even when the AMT Paramedics are not on scene.
Engine 3 on Armstrong in Peoria will be doing the same starting today also.
