Volunteer firefighters, first responders sought!  Number of volunteers has declined, workload has doubled in 10 years.  The volunteer fire and emergency medical services is a challenging, exciting and rewarding experience, conveniently condensed into one package.  It also offers several viable options which you can pursue as a volunteer.  You can be fully trained and state certified at no expense to you!

Elgin Volunteer Firemen in Action

The Elgin Fire Department held its first annual open house on Saturday June 18th, 2011. The event included several demonstrations by firefighters, including the one above that shows how fast flames can spread in the average home - the sample room shown above was fully engulfed in just three minutes.

Keeping Up With Training

Elgin Fire Department seeks donations for

Fire Pup Program

The Elgin Volunteer Fire Department

is expanding

its community outreach in an

effort to prevent devastating

fires.  The "Fire Pup" program,

created in partnership

with the National Fire Safety Council,

helps the department by

providing educational materials.

"These materials are just fun ways to

connect to children," said Elgin

 Former Fire Chief Liston Crim. "If we can stop fire

 from ever happening, we don't

have to go out there and

 hopefully it will saves lives.

As our community grows,

so does the need for more

fire prevention education. "
