About the Company
The Glen Ellyn Volunteer Fire Company is proud to serve the Village of Glen Ellyn, protecting the lives and properties of the Glen Ellyn community since 1907. Unique to the Chicagoland area, the company is volunteer based, saving the community $5+ million per year and allowing neighbors to stand up for and protect neighbors.
The GEVFC responds to an average of 1,400 calls per year, fighting structure fires and performing rescue work as first responders to motor vehicle accidents. In addition the GEVFC provides fire safety education and community outreach to our friends and neighbors. Every volunteer is given significant training and the company is one of the best equipped in the Chicagoland area.
Becoming a volunteer firefighter with the GEVFC is an incredible way to give back to the community and be a part of something bigger. If you’d like to make Glen Ellyn as safe as possible, we have opportunities for you. Learn more about becoming a volunteer.
