Witt Fire Department

The mission of the Witt Volunteer Fire Department is to enhance the quality of living in our community by preventing or minimizing the loss of life or property resulting from fire or other emergencies, natural or human-caused, that may occur within the jurisdictional boundaries of the townships and municipalities we serve.

The Witt Volunteer Fire Department has been serving the City of Witt and surrounding communities since 1905. We have long tried to maintain a reputation of professionalism and hard work. Many members have sacrificed countless hours with family, money from their own pockets, and time away from work to help our community. Being a Witt Volunteer Firefighter will not get you on the front page of the newspaper or on time magazine. You will, however, get one of the most rewarding feelings a person can experience as a direct result of helping others in need.


The Witt Volunteer Fire Department has partnered with the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance to offer free smoke alarms to residences and businesses within our community. The WVFD will provide and install smoke alarms to any members of our community at no cost. For more information please visit our smoke detector information page.
