Evanston Fire Department

Evanston Fire Department Our goal is to provide the finest fire protection, rescue, emergency medical services and fire preve We have five fire stations located throughout the City.

Our goal is to prevent fires and life-loss through the finest in fire protection, rescue, emergency medical services, and fire prevention services. The fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day/365 days a year. These stations house five fire engines, two ladder trucks, two ambulances, and a Command Vehicle. We have two reserve fire engines, one reserve ladder truck, and a reserve ambulance. The maj

ority of our members are certified paramedics in addition to being firefighters. Besides staffing two Advanced Life-Support Ambulances, every engine and ladder truck company is equipped with Advanced Life-Support equipment. This means as soon as an engine or ladder truck arrives, it can begin life-saving treatment even before the ambulance arrives. Through the overall efforts of the City to support Fire and Life Safety Services, property owners enjoy insurance premium benefits of an Insurance Services Office (ISO) fire protection "Class 1” rating.

UPDATE (4:48 p.m.) - The CTA Purple Line has resumed service and the Red Line is running at a reduced rate. Chicago Avenue has fully reopened to vehicles.

(11:45 a.m.) - Due to a CTA Yellow Line train derailing at the Howard Street Switching Station, the CTA has shut off power to the Red and Purple Line trains. Power will remain off for a prolonged period. As a result, Chicago Avenue is closed between South Boulevard and Howard Street. It is unknown how long the roadway will remain closed.
