Fire Marshal Safety

The Illinois State Fire Marshal is encouraging residents to stay safe with summer activities. When using grills make sure they’re away from the home and kept clean. A build up of grease can increase chances of a fire. Avoid lighting a campfire on windy or dry days. And, always have a hose or bucket of water close to a fire pit when burning, as well as when using fireworks like sparklers. More information on summer fire safety can be found on the Office of the State Fire Marshal website.


Drive, Drop, and Donate

The sixth annual Drive, Drop, and Donate has begun! Hosted by the DuPage Credit Union, the event is open today for all to drop off their broken or unneeded electronics, such as printers or fax machines, as well as sensitive documents so they can be properly recycled or shredded. A minimum of a $10 donation is required to use their service, with all the proceeds going to the company’s “We’ve Got Your Back” backpack fundraiser, which buys backpacks and school supplies for DuPage County students in need. In past years Drive, Drop, and Donate has raised around $3,000.

Check out the fair Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
