Of its 44 paid firefighters and 12 contract paramedics, Elmhurst has a minimum of 11 firefighters and four paramedics on duty each day. The Elmhurst Fire Department provides Advanced Life Support services. The department’s ultra-modern equipment not only fights fires, but also is designed to respond to medical, hazardous materials, technical above and below grade rescues, and vehicle extrication. Each station has two engine companies and one 100-foot aerial truck company. Two rescue squads, boat and administrative vehicles are also in service.
Elmhurst is one of only 16 communities in Illinois with an I.S.O. Class II protection rating. The department emphasizes prevention through building inspections, construction reviews, public education programs in the schools, and the sale of smoke detectors and extinguishers at both fire stations as well as at Elmfest and other community events.
