Mutual Aid

Responses & Aid

The Fire Department responded to 1974 emergencies in 2015, 58% of these responses are called for emergency medical services. The department also provides as well as receives mutual aid / auto-aid services from several of our surrounding communities.


The La Grange Fire Department is a member of the Division 10 Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS). Division 10 consists of 17 area fire departments. On a regular basis, communities face emergencies that overtax their own fire and emergency medical service operations, as well as their specialty response team capabilities. Being a MABAS member affords invaluable benefits to a stricken community by providing manpower and equipment assistance when needed.
