About Us
The North Palos Fire Protection District is a separate government body, with 3 Trustees and a Fire Chief. We maintain three fire stations that serve the community in firefighting, advanced life support (paramedic service), hazardous materials and technical rescue specialty teams. In 57 years of service to the community, the District has grown by expanding programs and services. The District protects the communities of Palos Hills, Worth, a portion of Hickory Hills and a large area of the Cook County Forest Preserve; totaling a 15.5 square mile area and a population approaching 35,000 people. We anticipate responding to over 5000 emergency calls this year.

The daily staffing of sixteen personnel each day is the same every day of the year! A Battalion Chief oversees the three stations and their daily operations. Each Station is staffed by: 1 Lieutenant, 1 Engineer, 2 Paramedic/Firefighters, 1 Part-Time Firefighter. Each station has a Paramedic Ambulance and Fire Apparatus which respond together on emergency calls.
The District is a member of Division 21 M.A.B.A.S. (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) which consists of 63 Division’s encompassing over 1000 fire departments throughout the State of Illinois.

Fire Safety Tips
Babysitters should know the family's name, address of the home and how to contact the parents.

Babysitters should have the numbers for the Police & Fire departments and at least one number of a nearby neighbor that the family trusts.

Never leave a child unattended in a bathtub.

Always test the water temperature before putting young children in the water.

Never set the water temperature on a water heater any higher than 120 degrees.

If the babysitter is unsure about something going on in or around the house, call 911.

As a reminder, we ask all residents to check your smoke detector for proper operation. We have had two house fires recently in which their smoke detectors were NOT working due to dead batteries.
