Fire Chief

Chief Sander 1

I am proud to serve the residents and visitors of The Village of Lombard as Fire Chief.

The men and women that make up the fire department are highly trained professionals that work tirelessly to protect our community. The Lombard Fire Department serves over 43,000 residents and protects over ten square-miles including our unincorporated areas.

The Fire Department delivers comprehensive emergency services that include Emergency Medical, Structural Fire Fighting, Technical Rescue, Emergency Preparedness and Hazardous Materials response. 

We operate out of two Fire Stations. They are located at 50 East St. Charles Road and 2020 South Highland Ave.

Our daily 24/7 deployment of personnel and apparatus includes three (3) Advanced Life Support Ambulances two (2) Advanced Life Support Engines, one (1) Advanced Life Support Tower Ladder and a command vehicle.  All of vehicles are staffed with Firefighter/Paramedics.

Our Fire Department also provides fire safety programs to our schools, public education for our citizens and fire inspections for our residents and business community through our Bureau of Fire Prevention.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about the Lombard Fire Department or the services we provide.
