Fire Department

The  Tinley Park Fire Department has been providing high-quality fire prevention and suppression services to residents since 1901. More than 125 Fire Department personnel serve around the clock from fully staffed fire stations located in four strategic locations in the Village.

The Fire Department's mission is to provide an outstanding level of service by staffing the highest degree of trained professionals, who devote duty above personal risk. The Fire Department is constantly seeking improved ways to provide exceptional service to 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, the Fire Department maintains an on-duty complement of 15 members staffing two engine companies, one truck company, one tower ladder and a shift commander. Staff trains regularly at the state-of-the-art training center and are members of MABAS Division 24. Staff also participate as members of the CART Blue Technical Rescue Team. Paramedic service is provided by Kurtz Ambulance Service, the Village's EMS contract service staffing five advanced life support ambulances.

Here you’ll find FAQs, key forms and publications, helpful safety tips, information on Public Education events, details on inspections, fundraising and donation opportunities and detailed reports. Feel free to call the Fire Department at (708) 444-5200 with any questions.
