The Divernon Community Fire Department was established in 1920. In 1956 the Divernon Fire Protection District was formed by voter approval and it provided expanded coverage to the Glenarm area and parts of Ball and Auburn Townships.
The DFPD has a ISO fire rating of 5/9 and provides Emergency Medical Care at the ILS/D Limited Med level. DFPD provides mutual aid to all surrounding communities and assists the Village of Divernon with weather spotters. The DFPD strives to be an integral part of the community by participating in and hosting different events within the community. The DFPD is governed by the appointed board of trustees and operates from an annual budget supported through taxes.
