We are happy to have a fire engine and an ambulance stop at your block party for an educational visit. The personnel and equipment that visit are the on-duty, and will need to remain in service and available for emergencies. Block parties must be scheduled in advance. You will first need to fill out a Block Party Request form and receive approval from the La Grange Public Works Department. Once approved, please call the Fire Department at (708) 579-2338 during normal business hours to arrange for the fire engine and ambulance visit to your block party.
Blood Pressure Screenings
The La Grange Fire Department offers free blood pressure screening checks at the Fire Station. Checks are offered Monday through Friday from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, or Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Home Safety Surveys
Upon request, the Fire Department will come to your home and perform a free home safety survey. This is not an inspection, and we do not issue violation notices. As a courtesy, we will provide a walk-through with the homeowner to discuss any potential life safety problems. An example item covered in this survey is the number and location of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
The Fire Department is happy to make a presentation on any fire safety-related topic that is of interest to your organization.
