Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District proudly protects 17000 people living in an area of 140 square miles. We operate out of six stations stations that protect a primarily rural area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status.
We have three fulltime Officers, two part-time seasonal employees, and one really terrific office manager. We have a good group of volunteers. Our firefighters work very hard at their tasks and are constantly improving. Our community supports us, the merchants support and appreciate our efforts, and that makes us happy to be doing what we do.
