Chief's Message

Fire ChiefIt is with great pride that I welcome you to the Carpentersville Fire Department web site. Thank you for taking the time to visit our web page. I hope you find it both informative and interesting.

Established in 1915, the Carpentersville Fire Department has developed from the small home town department lead by Fire Chief Dan S. Davidson in which the residents heard the siren blow when someone was in need of help to a state of the art department it is today. According to the history of the department, 12 men have served as fire chief and helped developed what today is one of the best fire departments in the State of Illinois. I thank each of them for the foundation which they helped lay. It is a distinct honor and privilege for me to continue in the position of Deputy Fire Chief for you, the extraordinary employees of the fire department and the citizens that we protect and provide fire and emergency medical services to.

As we enter our 99th year of providing service to the community, we face economic times that many of us have never experienced before. Let me assure each of you that live in our community and those who visit, the men of women that are employees of this fire department will continue to provide the highest level of care, compassion, and service to those who need it. Without the support of Village Manager Mark Rooney and the Board of Trustees, the department would not be able to provide the level of service it provides.

John Skillman, Deputy Fire Chief
