From the Chief's Desk

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Villa Park Fire Department web site. I hope you find this site informative and helpful. The Villa Park Fire Department is a proud organization providing dedicated service to the residents and visitors of Villa Park.

The Villa Park Fire Department currently employs 24 full-time shift personnel divided into three shifts who work a 24-hour shift and are off for 48 hours. All shift personnel are Certified Firefighters and Licensed Paramedics working out of two Fire Stations - Station 82 at 102 West Plymouth and Station 81 at 1440 South Ardmore.

The Fire Service has been challenged with an increase in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and non- emergent incidents. Along with providing Fire and EMS services, the department has members trained

in Hazardous Materials, Technical Rescue, and Swift Water Rescue. The Villa Park Fire Department is a member of MABAS Division 12 which allows for the sharing of resources with specialty teams.
