The Park Ridge Fire Department facilities currently consist of two strategically located fire stations and one separate administrative office building. Minor calls are dispatched to either the North Station (Station 36) or the South Station (Station 35) and are determined by the location of the call as the city is divided by railroad tracks. For more serious calls, both stations will be dispatched.
Station 35, located at 901 West Devon Avenue, houses the Fire Prevention Bureau office, Plan Review office, Lieutenant's office and quarters and the Public Education office. Equipment located at this station include: Engine 35, Reserve Engine 35, Ambulance 35, Rescue Squad 35 and the Dive Rescue Boat.
Station 36, located at 1000 N. Greenwood Avenue is home to the Battalion Chief's office and quarters, a Lieutenant's office and quarters, the Training Room/Emergency Operations Center, drill tower, the children's fire safety house which is equipped with a built-in smoke machine and the sprinkler demonstration room. Equipment located at this station include: Battalion 35, Engine 36, Truck 36, Ambulance 36, Reserve Ambulance 36 and the Utility 36.
Both stations have fully equipped kitchens, locker rooms with private baths and showers, sleeping quarters with cubicles for privacy, and fully equipped exercise and tool rooms. Both apparatus bays have five overhead doors and are equipped with exhaust hoses that forcibly remove diesel fumes from the building to the outside.
The Administrative staff has been relocated to City Hall at 505 Butler Place.
