ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Tremont Fire Protection District has served the Tremont community since 1924 and takes pride in responding to the emergency needs of its residents. The district, roughly bordered by Townline, Towerline, Allentown and Weishaupt Roads, covers approximately 75 square miles and 2,000 households. Responding to about 70 calls per year, the Tremont Fire Department enthusiastically strives to ensure the safety of the Tremont community’s citizens and property.
Today’s firefighters respond to more than simply fires. Tremont firefighters are responsible for confined space rescues, hazardous material incidents and many other emergencies. Firefighters continue to adapt to these new challenges by attending training locally, within the county, and at numerous “fire schools” across the state.
