Braidwood Fire Department was originally formed in 1877. In 1948 the firefighters and City of Braidwood agreed to have the fire department separate from the City and the firefighters to take over department operations and responses as the Braidwood Volunteer Fire Department. The fire department was incorporated in 1948 as a non-profit corporation to serve the area in fighting fires and educating the public in fire prevention. The department was established per referendum in 1966 to aid and assist the fire department to improve training and responses. In 1974 a referendum was passed to include emergency ambulance service.
Braidwood Fire Department is a member of the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) Division 15.
Braidwood Fire Department is dispatched by the Western Will County Communications Center (WESCOM).
