Message from the Chief

During 2017, the department responded to more than 6,352 calls for service, an increase of nearly 5% compared to 2016.  Calls include fires, rescues, medical emergencies, hazardous material spills and general public service requests. We also respond when requested to assist other fire departments within the area. In turn, these departments provide us assistance when we need them.
The men and women of the Fire Department take great pride in serving the Village. Each and every member is committed to training, fire prevention, and the community. It is my honor and privilege to serve as the Fire Chief and lead such a dedicated group of men and women each and every day.


It is with pride that I present the 2017 Downers Grove Fire Department Annual Report. We strive to protect lives and property through Fire Prevention, Public Education, Firefighter Safety, Fire & Rescue Operations, Emergency Medical First Response and Disaster Management.  The department prides itself on being prepared for the future and remains focused on delivering safe, effective and efficient service.
