Chief John-Paul Schilling

On behalf of the Village of Carpentersville Board of Trustees and all of the members of the Carpentersville Fire Department, it is indeed an honor to welcome you to the website of the Carpentersville Fire Department. We are pleased that you have taken the opportunity to visit with us.

The Carpentersville Fire Department is a professional emergency full-service agency with its number one priority of providing caring and efficient service to you. We work very hard at being prepared to serve and protect the people of the Village of Carpentersville and the Countryside Fire Protection District; and we do that through education, training, and, most importantly, compassion.

We are extremely proud to serve you, and want each and every one of you that live in the community and those who visit, to know that the employees of this fire department will always provide the highest level of care, compassion, and service to those who need it. Without the support of Village Manager Eric Johnson and the Board of Trustees, the fire department would not be able to provide the excellent level of service it provides today.

We encourage you to stop by any of one of our three fire stations and visit with us. If I can be of any assistance to you at any time, please feel free to call me at 847-426-2131.

John-Paul Schilling, Fire Chief
