One ambulance is housed at each of the Village's two fire stations located at 1200 Oak Brook Road and 725 Enterprise Drive (at 22nd Street). A reserve ambulance is also maintained for special events, disasters and placing in service in the event that one of the regular ambulances is out of service for maintenance.
