                    Welcome to the Creve Coeur Fire Department Website

The Creve Coeur Fire Department was established in 1938 and located between the cities East Peoria and Pekin, Illinois. The Creve Coeur Fire Department provides fire protection and medical response for the Village of Creve Coeur which encompasses approximately 7 square miles. The department averages around 700 calls a year and has a population of 5000 citizens. The Creve Coeur Fire Department is a all volunteer department and even though it provides BLS medical response to calls it is a non-transporting agency of the Peoria Area EMS System.

The Creve Coeur Fire Department has two Fire Stations with Central House located at 203 Wagner Drive and Station 2 located at 592 Dempsey Street.

 Come Support the Creve Coeur Fire Department at Dairy Queen's FD fundraiser night August 29th 7-9pm. CCFD will have Fire Apparatuses and personnel there for a night fun at Dairy Queen.

2012 Creve Coeur Fire Department Annual Santa Day

This is a tradition that is going on 31 years and it started as a way to burn old fuel out of the apparatuses  and allow firefighters to stay familiar with locations of the fire hydrants. This is our way of giving back to the community that supports us all year long. We appreciate the help of our Santas, our helpers from the Boy Scouts, and others.


Colder Weather Means Running Your Furnance

With running your furnance means your carbon monoxide detector may alarm. There are many reasons for your detector to do this, please read the following on the use of CO detectors. It is a state law to have a CO detector in your home if you use fossil fuel to heat your residence. Click on our Carbon Monoxide teb to see the law.

The carbon monoxide detector may be battery operated, plug-in with battery back-up or wired into the home's AC power with a secondary battery back-up; must bear the label of a nationally recognized testing laboratory: and must comply with the most recent standards of the Underwriters Laboratories or the Canadian Standard Association.

Safety measures:

  • Never burn charcoal inside your home or garage.
  • Always open the chimney flue when you use your fireplace.
  • Never run a combustion engine, such as your car, lawn mower or snow blower, in enclosed areas.

Install a CO detector:

  • Install a CO detector within 15' of any room used for sleeping in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Do not install a CO detector near your kitchen or garage or in a room with a furnace.
  • If your CO detector goes off and you feel ill, leave the house and call 911 or the local fire department. If you do not feel ill, push your detector's reset button. If the alarm goes off again after a few minutes, open the windows, leave the house and call 911 or the local fire department.
