About The Bensenville Fire Protection District

Welcome to the Bensenville Fire Protection District #2 website. We hope you will find our website useful and informative. Under a unique Intergovernmental Agreement, the Bensenville Fire Protection District #2 (Bensenville FPD) and the Addison Fire Protection District #1 (Addison FPD) have agreed to share the current Addison FPD fire chief as the Bensenville FPD undergoes various restructuring measures to conserve taxpayer dollars. This agreement will save the Bensenville FPD significant money while also providing the Addison FPD with revenues that are paid for these shared services. The Bensenville FPD has seen its taxpayer base shrink as properties once served have been annexed by the City of Chicago for the expansion of O’Hare Airport. This financial challenge, along with others, have prompted these cost savings measures as the Bensenville FPD balances providing exceptional fire, EMS, and rescue services within a tightened financial environment. We continue to strive to make Bensenville a better and safer place in which to live, work, and visit. On behalf of our trustees, officers, and firefighters, thank you for the privilege of serving you. If I can be of any service, please contact me at 630-350-3441 or by email at swalker@bensenvillefpd.org.

Sincerely,

Chief Scott Walker

thanks Drew

Fatal fire in Bensenville

Excerpts thedailyherald.com:

A man in his mid-80s was killed in a Tuesday morning house fire near Bensenville.

The man’s wife reported the blaze in the basement of the tri-level house on the 4N500 block of Church Road near White Pines Golf Club. Dispatchers received a 911 call at 8:23 a.m. Firefighters arrived at 8:30 a.m., met the wife outside the house and began battling the blaze which was quickly extinguished.

The man likely died from his injuries before firefighters were called, Bensenville Fire Protection District Chief Michael Spain said. The man had been confined to his bed for about 20 years, and fire officials had been to his house numerous times for medical emergencies. The fire was contained to that room, but there was smoke damage throughout the house. The structure was left uninhabitable.

The DuPage County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the blaze.
