How do I obtain a copy of a fire report or ambulance report?

Copies of fire and/or ambulance reports can be obtained from Fire Administration Office, 499 South Milwaukee Avenue, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (excluding recognized holidays), 72 hours after the incident occurred.

Copies of ambulance reports are only released to the actual patient, legal guardian, documented relative (such as a spouse or parent),or by legally executed subpoena.  Ambulance reports will not be released as part of a Freedom of Information Act (I.e. FOIA) request due to Federal laws regarding patient confidentiality.
