About Berwyn Firefighters

Berwyn Firefighters Local 506 was chartered with the IAFF in 1937 to promote the establishment of just & reasonable working conditions and promote harmonious relations between firefighters and the city. The men and women of Berwyn Local 506 are dedicated to preserving life & property and providing the community of Berwyn, IL with the highest level of professional firefighting/EMS services. We promote the research and treatment of burns and other related health problems common to firefighters. We also encourage our membership to obtain the knowledge of modern and improved methods of firefighting/EMS and prevention through continued education.

Annually, we donate our time to "Fill The Boot" for MDA, sponsor children to attend the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance "I am Me" Burn Camp, deliver Food Baskets for families in need, and we co-sponsor our Citizen's Fire Academy to help educate our community through fire prevention. Not to mention, we annually sponsor many local educational, scholastic & mentoring programs, scouting, sports, recreation and civic organizations with our money that we raise.
