The Oswego Fire Protection District is located approximately 40 miles southwest of Chicago, Illinois. The district is over 60 square miles covering the northeast portion of Kendall County and about 4 square miles in Will County.
The OFPD covers all of the Village of Oswego, a large portion of the Village of Montgomery, approximately 800 acres in the Village of Plainfield and a small portion in the United City of Yorkville.

The district's population is estimated currently at approximately 45,000 residents and projections estimated that the population would grow to nearly 60,000 by 2010.

The Oswego Fire Protection District was formed by voter referendum in 1936. In 1986 the OFPD began providing Advanced Life Support Ambulances with a full-time staff of 6 Licensed Paramedics. On June 1, 2008 the district became a full-time, district-hired fire deparmtent.  Today the OFPD operates four stations with a full-time staff of 59 Paramedic/Firefighters and an additional 20 Paid-On-Call Firefighters.

The OFPD responded to an ever-increasing number of calls for service over the course of the past 5 years - with an increase of more than 1700 calls from 2006-2011.  In addition to calls for service, the OFPD provides additional services to the community such as Fire Prevention and Safety Programs, New Construction Plan Reviews, Fire Cause and Origin Investigation, Public Education Programs, C.P.R. Classes, Community Block Parties, School Visits and Station Tours, and most recently, certified child passenger safety seat technician services.
