The Beach Park Fire Department is located in the far Northeast portion of Illinois. We are responsible for providing fire protection, rescue, and emergency medical services to a district of approximately 10 square miles that encompasses the majority of The Village of Beach Park and some of the immediate unincorporated area surrounding the Village of Beach Park. We proudly serve approximately 15,000 residents as well as daily commuter traffic between Wisconsin and the Chicago area. During the warmer months the population swells considerably with a large volume of visitors to The Illinois Beach State Park.

We are a combination department with both full time and part time employees supplemented by paid-on-call Firefighter-Paramedics. Full time employees are represented by the International Association of Firefighters, IAFF Local 4806. All members must attain a minimum of a State of Illinois certification of Firefighter II, and EMT-B level Emergency Medical Service certification. Full time members are required to be a paramedic, EMT-P. Our personnel must also maintain a high level of continuing fire and EMS education along with ongoing specialized team training. We are a member of the Lake and McHenry Counties Specialized Response teams. Our department responds to over 1250 calls for service per year.
