The Addison Fire Protection District is an all-hazards emergency services organization providing fire, medical, rescue and safety educational services to the Village of Addison and the unincorporated areas surrounding the village. The Addison Fire Protection District is housed in three fire stations staffed with full-time, cross-trained firefighter-paramedics.
Emergency services are primarily provided via three paramedic-equipped quint fire vehicles capable of performing the multiple roles of a fire engine, a ladder truck and rescue squad.
Three advanced life support ambulances provide paramedic services and transports to area hospitals: AMITA-Alexian Brothers Medical Center, Edwards-Elmhurst Hospital and AMITA-Adventist Glen Oaks Hospital.
The fire protection district also offers a variety of community services, such as blood pressure checks, CPR and first aid classes, health equipment loan program, public and private fire prevention classes, residential key box program and rural address sign program as well as a robust young adult Explorer program.
The Explorer program involves young men and women who are at least 14 years of age and not yet 21 years old. Exploring is all about helping young adults make a more informed decision about future careers and determine if a particular career is the right one for them.
