Fire Prevention conducts fire inspections of buildings in the Village, reviews building plans for fire protection and life safety, conducts fire drills, and provides fire safety education to the public, among a number of other activities. Our Fire Department takes great pride in the services offered, both in the field of fire protection and especially the unique and targeted public education programs conducted. If we can help residents learn how to prevent fires, and if they do occur, then learn how to escape from them and minimize the damage, everyone benefits.
Some of the educational programs include:
- Giving fire safety presentations at La Grange Park schools
- Discussing fire safety with senior groups and other community organizations
- Coordinating open houses
- Attending block parties
- Providing tours of the fire stations
At the request of the homeowner, Community Risk will also conduct a home fire inspection to help residents identify any possible hazards. Children and the elderly are most at risk from fire, and we can help!
