 In June 1977, Paramedic Services of Illinois (PSI) started a paramedic contract with the Village of Lincolnwood, providing their first ambulance with six paramedics for 24-hour coverage. In December of 1989, the Village expanded its contract to PSI to provide firefighting services. In addition to firefighting and paramedic services, the Department offers public education programs and fire inspection services. 

The Fire Department is staffed with 31 members, 28 of which are provided through PSI. They include a Deputy Chief, 3 Battalion Chiefs, 1 Capitan, 5 Lieutenants, 18 Firefighter/Paramedics and 1 part-time Fire Inspector. The Fire Chief and an Account Clerk are full-time employees of the Village. The Account Clerk services are shared between the Fire Department and Community Development.
