Fire Protection

The corporate authority of the City of Litchfield may contract with individual properties which are adjacent to the municipal boundaries,  and may supply fire protection service to the owners of property which lies outside the limits of the City. Fire Protection will be furnished upon annual application and approval to properties on a set fee basis as established by the City Council from time to time. This includes all homes on Lake Lou Yaeger lots leased by the City that are outside the corporate limits. 

If you're interested in the department's Fire Protection Service, please fill out our online agreement and form.  A member of our staff will contact you with more details.
