The holiday season is traditionally the hardest time for area blood banks to meet their needs. In an effort to help alleviate this shortage, and to show just how big a bunch of CHUMPS the Waterman Fire and Police departments are, we are hosting a blood-drive competition. Local friends, if you can, please set aside an hour or so on Saturday, December 21 and donate. Preferably under the Hinckley Team column.
Antique Fire Engine
We are getting going on restoring the 1936 GMC fire engine that was the district's first motorized fire apparatus. For more information, progress updates, or to make a donation, please click here.

Beware of Phone Solicitations!
Residents of the Hinckley Fire District have reported receiving phone calls seeking donations for a "retired & disabled firefighters fund" of some kind. The people seeking these donations indicated that some of the donations are sent to the Hinckley Fire District.
The Hinckley Fire District does NOT, and has NOT, ever solicited donations over the phone. We are not affiliated with and do not receive funds from any organization that conducts phone solicitation.
Thinking of Demolition?
Let us use your house-- get a tax break!
If you've recently purchased a piece of property and would like to demolish a building on it, consider letting the Fire Department train in it first. WE DON'T HAVE TO BURN THE BUILDING DOWN TO BENEFIT FROM TRAINING IN AN OLD STRUCTURE.
Live fire training is typically conducted in these buildings, with strictest adherence to safety standards. There is no liability for the owners of these structures to firefighters who train in them.
Firefighters can train in search and rescue, ventilation, forcible entry and firefighter survival without burning the building.
For more information call 815-286-7711.
If you have, or are thinking about getting Internet Phone Service, please check out our Public Safety page for important information you should know.
