Emergency Response Activities
Fire Department Responses
Flossmoor is a unique community with a diverse housing stock (our codes don’t allow any to homes to look alike). We have many large homes of significant square footage, open floor designs, and even one home with an elevator inside. Our housing stock is well built, and despite our building codes and fire prevention education programs, sometimes tragedies do occur. As such the Flossmoor Fire Department trains and prepares to respond to all types of events including residential and commercial building fires, car accidents, carbon monoxide and smoke detector activations, and specialized rescue (Trench, Confined Space, Vertical Rescue, or Structural Collapse) incidents. A breakdown of emergency responses is as follows:
