The LeClaire Fire Department was founded in 1906 after the great LeClaire fire that destroyed the majority of the downtown business district on June 11th 1906. Volunteer members respond to an average of over 400 requests for service per year including fires (structure and wild land), EMS, rescue, auto accidents and extrications, river rescues, and Hazardous Materials incidents, making us one of the busiest volunteer departments in Scott County each year. We provide over 9,000 man-hours to the community not only in emergency response but by providing volunteer assistance for events such as Tug Fest and Fire Prevention Week. Through hard work and the backing of the City, we were able to lower our ISO rating from a 6 to a 4 in 2006, which can help lower the insurance rates for members of our community.
At LeClaire Fire, you will find some of the best and most dedicated individuals in the fire service, men and women who truly believe in our motto:
"Whatever it Takes..."
