Fundraising and Donations
Donate a Car
Did you know that you can donate your unused vehicle to the Tinley Park Fire Department? Your donation will help teach extrication skills to new firefighters and improve the techniques of experienced firefighters.
The procedure is simple: Bring your unused vehicle to the Tinley Park Training Tower, 7800 W. 183rd St., and place it in the northwest corner of the lot. Unfortunately, we do not have the capability to retrieve/tow the vehicle for you at this time. To complete the process, bring your signed title and car keys to the Tinley Park Fire Department, 17355 S. 68th Court. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. You will receive a letter thanking you for the donation of your car with the year, make and model listed. We do not assign a value to the car.
Thank you for your generosity and keeping us in mind!
'Pass the Boot' for Muscular Dystrophy
The Chicago South Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)

Annual Fund Drive
Each year, Tinley Park residents and businesses donate funds to help upgrade and purchase new firefighting equipment. The Tinley Park Fire Department relies on these donations to serve and protect our growing community.
Through these donations, the Tinley Park Fire Department has been able to maintain its existing fire apparatus and build reserves for the replacement of equipment as it ages. Your donations allow us to be one of the best-equipped fire departments in the state. With your support and the hard work of our membership, the Village of Tinley Park maintains an insurance rating that helps keep fire insurance premiums low.
