Now that we have seven (7!!!) brand new recruits lined up and starting their Basic Operations Academy this weekend with the Illinois Fire Service Institute, we want to mention we're still always looking for experienced and already certified firefighters to join us at North Park.

Are you looking for a department to call home because maybe you had to relocate? Life circumstances changed but now you're able to dedicate time to a fire department again? We'd love to chat with you if you have interest. We're happy to bring on those with their Illinois BOF or FFII , and offer a streamlined process to do so.

North Park is a busier volunteer/part paid department that runs over 2,100 incidents a year, gets a good amount of fire calls between our incidents and auto aid/mutual aid, have top notch PPE and equipment, plus a new fire station in the works. If interested, please reach out and message us through this page or call the office at 815-636-3051.
