Sharon Fire & Rescue proudly protects the Township and Village of Sharon as well as contracted service to Boone County FPD#4 in Illinois. Fire Suppression and Paramedic Level-Emergency Medical Services are provided through a combination of Paid per Call/Volunteers and MEDIC 324 – a two person staffed Firefighter/Paramedic ambulance.

Organized in 1899, Sharon Fire & Rescue has been a progressive department throughout its history.  The department is equally funded by the Township and Village of Sharon and bases its operation from one station located at 182 Park St. in Sharon. Our personnel are well trained, exceed state minimum standards, are well equipped and funded by tax-based support of our governing bodies.

The residents of six municipalities voted in 2020 to fund MEDIC 324 in response to the nationwide shortage of volunteer responders. The MEDIC 324 program has delivered a higher level of care, faster response and relieved the burden on our volunteer staff. The fire and EMS departments of Sharon, Darien and Walworth work independently, and enjoy a close working relationship backing each other up on all types of responses. On large incidents, we depend on a MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) to bring any resources needed to an incident.



Sharon Fire & Rescue has openings for Paid On Call/ Volunteers and Part -Time positions on MEDIC 324. No experience is necessary. We only need positive attitude, good work ethic, and willingness to learn and help the community.

Not sure if it’s for you? Give us call - we will meet you for a tour of the station and we’ll discuss what you can do for us, and what we will do for you!

For more information or an application, call or text.
