    Default Age Limit in IL

    Does anyone know of any other career departments in IL that do not have the 35 y/o age cut off other than Champaign?

    I'm not 100%, but Peoria has a decent FD (BLS engines) and I don't think they have a cut off. I've seen some old guys* out there!


    *no offense.

    Belleville would allow over age 35, but you had to have experience with a municipal department. I think they would subtract your years of municipal service from your age, and if it was <35, you could test there.

    For example, if you were 42 and had eight years of service, they would consider you as age 34, and you could test.

    I'm assuming the munincipality would have to be a career department? I know a guy from Belleville so maybe I'll give him a call and find out. Thanks for the tip. Just trying to help a friend out who decided later in his career that he wanted to be a firefighter.
