Citizens Fire Academy

Have you ever wondered what the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District is all about? What's it like to be a professional firefighter? How tough is it to handle that hose line? What's it like to work in firefighter's gear with self-contained breathing equipment on your back? Have you ever asked yourself why firefighters do the things they do and take the risks that they take? Did you ever wonder how you would react in an emergency situation? Can you choose the proper fire extinguisher and use it correctly? Are your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors located properly? If a family member or friend has a heart attack in your home, would you know how to help that person?

Enrollment in the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District's Citizens Fire Academy can provide answers to these questions, and more! We are seeking citizens who will share the knowledge that they will gain with other members of their organizations, family members, and friends. Our goal is to teach participants cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, fire safety, and fire extinguisher selection and use. Further more, we wish to acquaint the public with the firefighting tactics and strategy employed by Lisle-Woodridge Fire District. We intend to cover fire prevention, fire suppression, and the operations of our specialized hazmat and rescue teams.

Participation in all activities is purely voluntary. We hope that participants will come away from this experience with a better understanding of the wide range of services that the fire department offers our community.

The Citizens Fire Academy is offered annually to village residents and employees. Class size is limited and vacancies are filled on a first come, first served basis. Interested applicants can contact Bureau Chief Spinazola at (630) 353-3000 for additional information.  Currently no Academy classes are scheduled.
