Minonk is an Objibwa word meaning “Good Place”.  In addition to being surrounded by some of the best farmland in Illinois, Minonk is home to some of the friendliest people around.  Centrally located on the I-39 corridor, Minonk is a short drive to the campuses of Illinois State University or the excitement of the Peoria River.  We are surrounded by the amenities of several large cities yet have managed to maintain our small town charm.


The City of Minonk is proud to serve the community with ambulance service. The primary response ambulance is staffed 24/7/365 with a minimum of 2 EMT's. 

Our squad is comprised of a mixed group of dedicated volunteers and paid staff. Feel free to stop by our building and meet your ambulance personnel. General business hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Someone will be there unless they are out on an emergency call. If you have any questions please call (309) 432-2730.
