Naperville Fire Department
As Fire Chief of the Naperville Fire Department, I am proud to say that the citizens of the City of Naperville are well protected by a fire department equipped with staff, equipment, response teams, and plans to handle the risks that have been identified within the community. The fire service has changed dramatically over the years and the City of Naperville is fortunate to have kept up with the changes. The Naperville Fire Department is an internationally accredited fire agency through the Center for Public Safety Excellence and has proven to be credible in more than 250 performance standards. The department continues to be a fine example of service delivery excellence in all levels and types of services that are provided.
