Fire Prevention 24–7 — Naperville safety events


Passport to Safety

10-1PM, Sat., Sept. 29
Safety Town
1320 Aurora Ave.

The Naperville Police and Fire Departments, in conjunction with the Illinois Crime Prevention will be hosting the ‘Passport to Safety’ event in late September. During this open house format participants will receive a “safety passport” that entitles them to visit many safety destinations. At each destination those in attendance will receive valuable safety information including bike, water, fire, and railroad safety, along with how and when to call 911. At the conclusion of each lesson a stamp will be provided for the passport. This is a great family event or Cub Scout or Girl Scout outing.

Public Safety Open House
11AM-2PM, Sat., Oct. 13
Public Safety Campus
1380 Aurora Ave.

Once again the Naperville Police and Fire Departments will be “Partnering for Prevention” during Public Safety Month in October. The purpose of this initiative is to disseminate important crime and fire prevention information to the residents of Naperville and to encourage citizen action regarding crime and fire prevention strategies. Both departments firmly believe that citizens are the number one defense against fire and crime and want to spread the word that residents need to “Prepare, Practice and Prevent” in order to keep their families safe.

This must-see event will include a variety of activities including an auto extrication and simulated DUI arrest along with a Superior Air Med Helicopter exercise, a demonstration by the Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team and a flashover fire demonstration. A large display of Fire and Police vehicles and equipment will also be on-site. Kids can take part in the Firefighter and Police Challenges and have a visit with Sparky and McGruff. AAA’s Distracted Driving Simulator will show the dangers of texting and driving and old favorites such as the evidence collection demonstration and fire extinguisher training will also be available.
