Fire Department

The Wheaton Fire Department is a proud organization that continuously works to deliver the highest quality service. Our personnel appreciate all of the support that the community provides.

We deliver comprehensive services that are designed on an all-hazards approach. The services include fire suppression, hazardous materials, technical rescue, emergency medical, risk prevention, community education and disaster preparedness/management.

Services are delivered by our 35 career firefighting personnel and 18 contract paramedics. Our highly trained and dedicated professionals operate out of three fire stations that are strategically located throughout the community.

The Wheaton Fire Department has an ISO Fire Suppression Rating of 3 out of 10 (with 1 being the best possible rating). This rating, which is issued by the ISO advisory organization, takes into account factors such as water distribution and fire department equipment and is used primarily by the property and casualty insurance industry.

In keeping with our mission, we strive to seek opportunities to improve our service delivery through advanced training and the use of the most current technology. We appreciate any feedback from residents, and we are proud to play a positive role in this great community.
