The Fire Department participates in the following the public education programs:
Juvenile Firesetter Program
Local police and fire departments participate in this state-wide program, to help rehabilitate juveniles who have been involved with starting fires. The program involves fire safety education and counseling, and is targetd at children between the ages of 3 and 14 years old. If you have a juvenile fire-setter problem, we have trained firefighter/intervention specialists who will handle this matter confidentially. Do not delay getting help for this problem! Call (847) 304-3600.
Fire Station Tour
The Fire Department opens its doors and provides station tours for groups of all ages. These tours provide the opportunity to see where firefighters live and work, and the machines and equipment we use to respond to emergencies. To schedule a group tour, please contact the Fire Department at (847) 304-3600. Please note that group size may be limited.
