987 E. Palatine Rd.Station 83 is located at 987 East Palatine Road and serves the east side of Palatine.

Station 83 was built in 2003, and is located within a stone’s throw of Illinois Route 53, and for good reason.  Formerly known as Station 20, this station responds to a large majority of the incidents that occur on this main thoroughfare, due to its close proximity and easy access to the roadway heading either direction.  Staffed by 5 Firefighter/Paramedics, Ambulance and Quint 83 are frequently responding to car accidents on Route 53, emergency medical responses to nearby residential mid-rises, and calls on a long stretch of Northwest Highway as part of their district.  Reserve Quint 83 is housed at this station as a replacement vehicle if one of the fire department's other aerials needs repair, or if there is a large incident that occurs within Palatine. In such an event, off-duty firefighters will respond from home and staff the unit to help cover the additional call volume that may occur throughout Palatine.
