From the Chief

To the Residents of the Braidwood Fire Protection District,

Welcome to the Braidwood Fire Protection District web site.  If you are a resident of the Fire District, we are honored to serve as your “Home Town” Fire Department and appreciate you taking the time to visit and perhaps learn a little more about us. For those of you, stopping by to visit the site, we hope you find useful information about us that meets your needs.

The Braidwood Fire Department is dedicated to being a professional, well-prepared Emergency Services Provider. This is made possible through the commitment of our all of our personnel from Chief Officers to the Cadets. Due to the ever-changing events in the world today, we will be challenged with the task of continually improving upon our Fire, Emergency Medical Services and Specialized Rescue skills. Through these efforts will make the Braidwood Fire Protection District a better and safer place in which to live, work, and recreate.

As your Fire Chief, I can’t tell you how proud I am of all the individuals associated with our Fire Department family. From the Fire Department’s Staff, and part-time shift personnel to the dedicated paid on call members and community volunteers, we truly work as a team.  All of our personnel are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our citizens, business partners and visitors.

I would like to extend an open invitation to you to visit your local fire station and learn more about the services we have to offer. However, if you do not have the time to visit, I am sure you will find plenty of information on our website.

As always, if there is something we can do to improve, please let me know. Your feedback is valued and will be appreciated.

The Firefighters and Officers of the Braidwood Fire Protection District also want to thank you for visiting our web site. Please stay safe and healthy.

Chief Barry Eggers
