Mission Statement

The Glenside Fire Protection District is dedicated to preserving the quality of life and property of our residents and businesses by providing diverse, high quality services that answer the needs of our community. We will participate actively in the community through education and prevention, serving as a role model that is identifiable, accountable and one that lets the community know

“We’re There & We Care”

The Glenside Fire Protection District is excited to have this resource at our disposal for the care of our residents.

Stroke is the leading cause of disability and the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. When a stroke occurs, every second before a patient begins receiving care, can impact and count toward the recovery time. As emergency calls come in through 9-1-1, if details are indicative of a possible stroke the unit will be mobilized to meet the medics on the scene.

It is a very unique piece of equipment that can only respond to calls from the Central Du Page Hospital EMS Service area, but has agreed to respond the Glenside Fire Protection District on our initial dispatch for a stroke, and can be called to the scene if the patient shows symptoms of a stroke. They hope to expand geographical coverage in the future.

This Mobile Stroke Unit is the first of its kind in Illinois and one of the first in the world. If the unit is mobilized to a scene, the patient will be billed the same as if they were transported by ambulance. No tax dollars are spent on providing this valuable service to the community.
