Fire Department SealThe Fire Department provides fire and emergency medical services to the residents of the Village, as well as the surrounding Carpentersville and Countryside Fire Protection District. The department provides several other services, which include but are not limited to fire prevention, fire investigation, public education, specialized rescue that includes: confined space, trench rescue, high angle, hazardous materials, water and ice rescue, and building collapse. In 2013, the department responded to just over 3,800 calls for service of which 2,611 were medical related calls and 1,235 fire related calls. The east side station handled 47% of the calls, with the old town station handling 34% and the west side station handling 19%. The remaining 3% of calls were providing mutual aid assistance to other communities. Fifty structure fires were responded to in 2013, which resulted in just over $1,350,275 in fire loss. The east and west side stations house a front line fast attack fire engine, which are advanced life support equipped, and an advanced life support ambulance. The headquarters station, located in the old town section, houses the same front line engine and ambulance as the others but also has a 100' tower ladder.
