A Message from Chief Reeder
Thank you for visiting the website of the Tinley Park Fire Department. Our department enjoys a proud history of more than 116 years of dedicated service to the Village and surrounding areas.

The department operates and looks much different than it did even a decade ago. Our staff of more than 125 personnel serves around the clock from fully staffed fire stations located in four strategic locations in the Village.

Our mission is to provide an outstanding level of service by staffing our department with the highest degree of trained professionals, who devote duty above personal risk. We are a dedicated group who is constantly seeking improved ways to provide exceptional service to our citizens. The department advances public safety through its fire prevention, investigation and education programs.

Responding to nearly 3,000 fire emergencies per year and supporting more than 5,000 emergency medical calls, your fire department maintains an on-duty complement of 15 members staffing two engine companies, one truck company, one tower ladder and a shift commander. We train regularly at our state-of-the-art training center and are proud members of MABAS Division 24. We also participate as members of the CART Blue Technical Rescue Team.

Paramedic service is provided by Kurtz Ambulance Service, our EMS contract service staffing five advanced life support ambulances.

Please feel free to contact the fire department administration office at (708) 444-5200 to arrange station tours, have your fire safety questions answered and to learn more about our public education, fire inspection and other services we provide to our businesses and residents.

Kidde Recalls Fire Extinguishers with Plastic Handles Due to Failure to Discharge and Nozzle Detachment

Hazard: The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately contact Kidde to request a free replacement fire extinguisher and for instructions on returning the recalled unit, as it may not work properly in a fire emergency.

Change your batteries
Clock and Battery.jpg
The Tinley Park Fire Department recommends that you regularly check and change the batteries in your smoke alarms.

Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Smoke alarms save lives!
