Welcome,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Fire Commissioners, Officers, the Firefighters of the Glenside Fire Protection District, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope this site serves as a resource to exchange valuable information with the public we serve, fire service organizations, and the general public.  

The Glenside Fire Protection District provides quality fire and emergency medical services for the majority of Glendale Heights and Glen Ellyn Countryside. The District includes approximately 4 square miles with 34,000 residents. The District has 18 full-time suppression personnel, 20 paid on call personnel, 2 chief officers, and 4 administrative support personnel. The District operates out of a centrally located fire station at Bloomingdale and Fullerton Avenue and responded to 2,579 emergency incidents in 2016. The District is proud to have obtained an ISO class 2.

The Glenside Fire Protection District (Glendale Heights) was recently evaluated by the Insurance Services Office (ISO).  ISO's staff collects information from over 48,000 fire protection agencies in communities throughout the United States, analyzes relevant data and assigns a Public Protection Classification (PPC) — a number from 1 to 10 (1 being the highest and best). A community’s Public Protection Classification is mainly based on three areas of a community’s fire protection capabilities: emergency communications, fire department operational capabilities, and water supply. Additionally, it includes a community risk reduction section that recognizes community efforts to reduce losses through fire prevention, public fire safety education, and fire investigation. Some insurance companies use this information to help determine property insurance premiums.

Since 2009, the fire district had been rated a Public Protection Class of 3 in the Village limits and rural areas.

On January 26th, 2017, the Glenside Fire Protection District was awarded an improved Public Protection Class (PPC) score of 2.  This places Glenside near the top of all fire departments in the United States for its ability to respond to emergencies.  Businesses and residents may see a reduction in their insurance premiums as a result of this improved rating. The fire district recommends that homeowners and business owners mention to their property insurance carrier the new ISO rating of 2. The staff of the Glenside Fire Protection District with assistance from the Village of Glendale Heights put forth a significant amount of time and effort in making this evaluation a success, and the Class 2 rating is a significant improvement and achievement.

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at rwood@glensidefire.org or call me at (630) 668-5323.

Respectfully,

Russell Wood

Fire Chief
