Welcome to the Hoffman Estates Fire Department website. I hope it provides the information you are looking for.
Our Department serves the Village of Hoffman Estates and a small portion of the Village of South Barrington. The Department currently employs 96 fulltime personnel, 93 of whom are assigned to one of our four fire stations. On a daily basis, there is a minimum of 22 firefighters on duty to provide immediate response to fire and emergency medical incidents. In 2017, the department responded to 5,807 calls for assistance.
There are many services we provide, all of which center on making the community a safe place to live and work. I'd like to make you aware of two services we gladly offer to our residents:
- Smoke Alarm Program: Firefighters will gladly assist residents in checking smoke alarms for proper installation and operation. Each of our fire companies also has a supply of smoke alarms and batteries allowing firefighters to install new smoke alarms or batteries if needed. There is no fee for this service.
- CPR and AED Training: Certified instructors provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED) instruction during regularly scheduled classes. There is a $60 to $75 fee per person, depending on the class. The fee covers all costs, including book fees.
If you would like to schedule either of these services, or have any questions or concerns, please contact our department at 847-843-4825.
Smoke detectors save lives. Is yours working? Why not check it now!
