Roselle first responders sponsor Open House Sept. 18
Residents of Roselle are invited to an Open House jointly sponsored by the village’s fire and police departments from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18 at both the fire station and police station.
The Roselle Fire Station is located at 100 E. Maple, while the Police Station is at 103 S. Prospect Ave. With three hours dedicated to the Open House, visitors are sure to be able to have enough time to visit both facilities if desired.
First responders will lead guided tours, offer refreshments and provide handouts along with other safety tips. Additionally, the festivities will include “touch-a-truck” for a hands-on experience with all the bells and whistles.
Two brand-new emergency vehicles will be on display along with an assortment of police cars and other tactical response units. Safety and law enforcement personnel plan to conduct live interactive demonstrations; the public is encouraged both to attend and to participate by bringing their questions about local safety to the event.
The Roselle Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency consisting of 32 sworn officers. Support staff includes several assistants, one services manager and community service officers. The department also includes emergency dispatch services with DuPage Public Safety Communications (DU-COMM).
The village’s Fire Department serves the public by protecting life and property and preventing loss and injury. Its services include public education, EMS, and emergency dispatch (DU-COMM) as well as fire prevention.
