Serving the Village of South Pekin
The South Pekin Fire Department is a 100% volunteer based department with a sole mission of protecting and preserving the lives and property of the citizens of South Pekin and surrounding area by providing Fire, Rescue, and EMS services.
The active volunteers that call the SPFD home, are comprised of your neighbors, your friends and maybe even your relatives, responding to hundreds of emergencies annually... They’re people just like you – with families, jobs and active lifestyles who find time to give back to their community.
