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.
Last Year was a busy year for the Creve Coeur Fire Department, the department ran 852 calls last year. That is the most calls ran in the departments history. We are up to 17 members on the department now with many being just 18 years old but wanting to be supporters of their community. We thank them for their commitment.
