Plainfield Fire Protection District is here to serve you every hour of every day. No matter what your emergency: fire, medical, water rescue, technical rescue, hazardous materials and others, we are prepared to respond. We will be here for you any time you need us.

Not only are our highly trained firefighters and paramedics here to respond to your emergencies, we are here to provide public education about fire safety, CPR, using a fire extinguisher or assist with the installation of your child car seat and other helpful and lifesaving skills that you might call upon in a time of need.

One of the best things you can do for you and your family or a shut-in neighbor is to check those smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors monthly and practice your Exit Drill In The Home (EDITH) plan with your family members. Call 9-1-1 for any emergencies but for general inquiries or non-emergency assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us at 815.436.5335.

These additions were substantially funded by a grant from our insurance company and we’re confident they’ll reduce the potential for accidents during our responses.

We’re excite […]

We’re very pleased to receive a generous grant from Illinois American Water allowing us to purchase a High Voltage Electrical tester, one each for our truck, BC vehicle and the Tactical Rescue Truck, which will increase safe operations around electrical wires and equipment at emergency scenes.
