PFPD is now accepting letters of interest for an appointment to the Board of Fire Commissioners. Letters due by 3:30pm on 05/17/2019.

The men and women of the Plainfield Fire Protection District are here to provide high-quality emergency services to you as well as those who are traveling through or visiting our community.  As Chief, I can assure you that our men and women are trained and ready to handle any emergency you may be experiencing. Not only does the Fire District respond to fire and medical emergencies, but we are prepared to respond to incidents involving: water rescues, hazardous materials, technical rescues, fire investigations, and others.

Emergency response is only one portion of what we can provide to you. Our proactive approach in keeping you safe is evident in our Community Risk Reduction programs we offer which includes: car seat installations, CPR courses, smoke alarm installations, fire safety presentations, building inspections, along with several other lifesaving programs.   Our hope is through education we can reduce or eliminate the potential for an emergency from occurring.

Lastly, I would like to reinforce the importance of installing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in your home.  According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 38% of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.  Statistics show that the risk of dying from a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.  Carbon monoxide alarms are just as vital as a smoke alarm.  Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that contributes to 400 deaths and over 21,000 emergency room visits annually.  Please do the following to keep you and your family safe: Check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms monthly; Change the batteries twice per year; Dial 9-1-1 for an emergency; Make sure your address is visible from the street.  If you require any further assistance or have any questions on the services we provide, don’t hesitate to contact us at 815.436.5335.
