Engineering Department

Most of the apparatus in the Lake Villa Fire Protection District’s diverse fleet is equipped to be multi-functional.  This provides more efficient service for the various types of emergencies the District’s personnel encounter.  

Our Ambulances and Fire Apparatus are streamlined and standardized, inside and out.  This allows our personnel to be familiar with all equipment and gives them the ability to work at any of our four stations

Our Engineers also respond to emergency calls as well, as most are assigned to shifts, with only the Chief Engineer, Captain Frank Slazes, being assigned to Days. We are committed to not only helping those in need, but also in trying to make sure our equipment is ready and safe for the Firefighters and Paramedics to use and respond if you should happen to call.

If you have any questions with our equipment, please call Captain Frank Slazes at Station #1 Monday – Friday from 7 am until 3 pm (CST) at 847-356-2525 or email at
