The St. Elmo – Irvington Volunteer Fire Department has been saving lives and protecting property in the St. Elmo – Irvington community since 1979. Started by volunteers living right here in the community, the tradition continues with our current volunteers under the command of Chief Josh McKeever. The St. Elmo – Irvington Volunteer Fire Department operates 365 days a year to protect lives and property from the destruction of fire, hazards, and natural disasters. With the philosophy prevention is the best line of defense, here at St. Elmo – Irvington Volunteer Fire Department we offer public safety education for schools, senior centers, and community events throughout the year.
We operate out of two fire stations conveniently located to give us good coverage to both the north and south side of the train tracks. Station 1 is located on Half Mile Road and Station 2 is located on Dodge Road, next to the community walking track.
