The Beach Park Fire Department is located in the far Northeast portion of Illinois. We are responsible for providing fire protection, rescue, and emergency medical services to a district of approximately 10 square miles that encompasses the majority of The Village of Beach Park and some of the immediate unincorporated area surrounding the Village of Beach Park. We proudly serve approximately 15,000 residents as well as daily commuter traffic between Wisconsin and the Chicago area. During the warmer months the population swells considerably with a large volume of visitors to The Illinois Beach State Park.
We are a combination department with both full time and part time employees supplemented by paid-on-call Firefighter-Paramedics. Full time employees are represented by the International Association of Firefighters, IAFF Local 4806. All members must attain a minimum of a State of Illinois certification of Firefighter II, and EMT-B level Emergency Medical Service certification. Full time members are required to be a paramedic, EMT-P. Our personnel must also maintain a high level of continuing fire and EMS education along with ongoing specialized team training. We are a member of the Lake and McHenry Counties Specialized Response teams. Our department responds to over 1250 calls for service per year.
Did you know you could receive a free smoke detector AND get it installed? Provided by the Illinois Fire Alliance, Beach Park FD has a supply of smoke detectors readily available to members of our community. Contact us today for more information, and to allow us to help make your home safer for you and your family!

It was a beautiful Service.
Beautiful service 🙏❤
My heart goes out to the family and the brothers and sisters at the department.
I remember back when this funny sounding kid moved in down the street. Could never figure out what “can I have a go at your bike?” meant. Got to know Christian pretty well and then when we’re in High School we both would end up at Hughie’s place to practice bagpipes. Which really meant we’d watch Hughie get “pissed” and steal some Special Exports out of the refrigerator. Wish I would have kept in contact long ago. Beach Park lost one hell of a man.
Services for Lt. Chris Samuels will be held November 23rd at 1:00 p.m., at Our Lady of Humility Church (10655 Wadsworth Road, Beach Park, IL). A walk through for the fire departments will start at 12:45, please be at Our Lady of Humility to line up at 12:30.
We would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support we have been receiving. It has not gone unnoticed, and we greatly appreciate every one of you. ... See MoreSee Less
Our love and thoughts are with Mark, Noah and his family. From Christians UK family ♥️
The funeral directors said they hoped to be streaming the service so hopefully family and friends here in the UK can say their own goodbyes. Do you know if a link will be posted tomorrow? Xx
