Steeped in a volunteer history rich with pride, the La Grange Park Fire Department has evolved into a modern full-service fire department. The Fire Department provides response to a wide variety of emergencies, including medical, fire, rescue, hazardous materials and other incidents. We also provide various forms of public education programs such as fire safety presentations for both children and adults, and cardio pulmonary resuscitation training.
Our Fire Department operates out of two fire stations, staffed by full-time contract paramedic / firefighters and paid-on-call firefighters. We take great pride in the dedication provided by our POC firefighters serving our community, nearly all of whom are also EMTs or paramedics. We also have a robust automatic-aid and mutual-aid system, where we work with neighboring fire departments in both receiving and giving help regularly when needed.
Our Mission Statement
The Village of La Grange Park Fire Department is a combination fire department, staffed predominantly by dedicated paid-on-call personnel, along with contracted full-time personnel. Our primary responsibility is to protect the public from the effects of illness, injury, fire and disaster. This is accomplished through educating the public on fire prevention, injury prevention, and health risks, conducting effective code enforcement and by providing excellent and efficient emergency response. Personnel are committed to being well trained and prepared for all emergencies, while maintaining the spirit of volunteerism. We are ever focused on the needs of those we serve, while conducting ourselves at the highest level of moral and ethical standards.
