The Marengo Fire Protection District was founded in 1958. MFPD covers an area of 106 square miles which is the second largest district of the state, and encompasses 17% of McHenry County. The fire district boundaries include the City of Marengo, which consists of only 4 square miles of the district, Riley Township, and portions of Coral and Seneca Townships.

The city population in 2007 was 7,536 with a projection between 9,000 and 13,000 residents by 2010. Marengo will also have great potential for growing both residentially and commercially within this time frame.

The Marengo Fire Protection District along with the Marengo Rescue Squad District provides our citizens with 7 personnel that are on duty 24 hours per day and respond from 2 stations.

The duty crew staffs two ALS Ambulances and one ASL Engine/Ambulance Jump Company.

While the districts remain separate entities, these shared services allow the citizens to receive the highest level of service at the lowest possible costs.
