Take A Look At NIFM

While pictures are worth a thousand words, an actual visit is worth a thousand pictures! This quick glimpse of our equipment will get you started, but the real excitement comes with a trip to see us in person! Currently, only private tours are available - call us to schedule yours: 815-568-8950.


We have slide shows of our Museum Owned Trucks and Equipment, our Member Owned Trucks, as well as our Fire Buffs page where you can find Fire Fighting Equipment from enthusiasts around the country.


We've also created a Flickr Page for the NIFM with even more pictures of our equipment, members equipment, some historical photos and just some more fun fire fighting photos that we enjoyed!
