(745 ILCS 10/5-103)
(from Ch. 85, par. 5-103)
(a) Neither a local public entity, nor a public employee acting
in the scope of his employment, is liable for an injury resulting from the
condition of fire protection or firefighting equipment or facilities.
Nothing in this section shall exonerate a public entity from liability for
negligence by reason of the condition of a motor vehicle while it is
traveling on public ways.
(b) Neither a local public entity nor a
public employee acting in the scope of his employment, is liable for an
injury caused by an act or omission of a public employee while engaged in
fighting a fire.
However, this Section shall not apply if the injury is caused by the
willful and wanton conduct of the public employee.
