New fire recuites
These pages represent an effort to provide up-to-date information about the ECFD and the people of the ECFD. In addition, we plan to offer many kinds of information you can use including discussion on fire safety, fire prevention codes and answers to frequently asked questions.

For now, explore the pages. Please excuse us as we continue to move things around. And by all means if there is something you would like to see on the East Chicago Fire Department’s web site let us know.

The Fire Department will provide exemplary service by maintaining the highest level of training and compliance to national and state standards. This can only be attained by the dedication and spirit of the East Chicago Fire Department members.


The East Chicago Fire Department is dedicated to safely respond, act and mitigate any threat to the safety and will being of the citizens of the City of East Chicago and those within our service area.
Our Fire Department Open House for 2015 will be on Saturday October 3, from 10am. to 2pm. at Central Fire Station 3901 Indianapolis Blvd.
