EAST PEORIA, Ill. – A project that's been talked about for 30 years in East Peoria, but really put into motion in the last three years, is now about to become reality. Ground has been broken on a $3.5 million new fire station to be located next to Illinois Central College's East Peoria campus. 'It's going to help provide fire and EMS services closer to this area of town,' said Bobby Zimmerman, East Peoria Fire Chief. 'In our line of work, seconds do matter, and this is going to let us get to this area of town significantly quicker than currently.
