Fire and Emergency Medical Services

Your St. Charles Fire Department – much more than you might think of as a fire department – is made up of talented men and women dedicated to your humanitarian needs. We provide a host of services to help you prevent and manage every emergency imaginable. In addition to fighting fire, we provide emergency medical services and vehicle rescue services. You might be surprised to learn our special operations teams provide water rescue, hazardous materials response, technical rescue, confined space rescue, structural collapse rescue and disaster response. In your time of need, count on us to proudly serve you. We’re ready 24 hours a day. It will be our privilege to help you.

As part of a healthy St. Charles community, we also participate in the advancement of pedestrian networks and advocate for access to healthy foods. We work with public and private partners to help eliminate poverty, reduce healthcare costs, provide healthy workplaces and promote good hygiene. We cheer for healthy living!
