Glenside Fire Protection District  

Fire Investigation Unit

 Background

            A need for fire investigation was mandated when the State of Illinois passed legislation requiring all fires to be investigated. The Glenside Fire Protection Districts  investigation unit is comprised Lt. Robert Garon, Lieutenant Stephen Lipowski, FF/PM Michael De Lillo, FF/PM Donald Sparks, and FF/PM Katherine Little. Additionally, the unit is supported by two investigators from the Glendale Heights Police Department and by the Du Page County Fire Investigation Task Force, of which Lt. Garon is the team leader. Currently, there is one investigator serving on each of the three shifts, but all investigators are available 24/7.

 Goal

            The Goal of the Fire Investigation Unit is to investigate all fires in a professional and scientific manner, consider the weight of the evidence and arrive at an expert opinion as to the cause of the fire, using nationally accepted standards. To achieve this goal all members continue with their investigation training on a monthly basis.

Vision

            By striving to determine the cause of every fire through this goal, the community is served when hazardous conditions are identified and the general public is informed and educated through the Public Education Division of the Glenside Fire Protection District. A subsequent goal of the Fire Investigation Unit would be to reduce the number of fires and the resulting injuries through this campaign of public awareness.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at slipowski@glensidefire.org or call me at (630) 668-5323 Monday Thru Friday 8am-4:30pm.
