Examples would include severe weather warnings and updates, hazardous traffic or road conditions inside the town or affecting local routes, and any other situation that could impact the safety, property, or welfare of our citizens.
a. We have four stations that provide service to both the Village of Lake Zurich and The Lake Zurich Rural Fire Protection District. Three of the stations are in the fire district and surround the Village of Lake Zurich and the village fire station which is centrally located. The three fire district stations are staffed with three cross trained firefighter/paramedics per day and respond as a jump company which means they either respond on an ambulance for a medical emergency or on the engine for a fire related call. This cost effective method reduces the need to staff the station with five personnel and run two separate pieces of equipment 24/7. Although staffing with five is a higher level of service to the residents, the cost benefit based on number of calls and the additional personnel that would be required does not fit within the financial limitations placed upon us.
b. The Village station #1, located on Buesching Road in the center of all fire district stations, is staffed with four personnel. Three respond as a jump company on either the engine/ladder truck or ambulance depending on the type of call. Each vehicle carries advanced life support equipment that can be deployed quickly even the fire engines The fourth person at this station is the Shift Commander in the command SUV who responds throughout the entire area for command and control.
c. Station 1 had a dedicated ambulance at one time. A decision was made by the Village Administration in 2009 to reduce staffing. We are currently running a Jump company - Engine/Ambulance out of station 1 in order to meet the needs of this response area.
d. The engine follows the ambulance on many medical calls such as; cardiac, stroke, diabetic emergencies, and overdoses to render support and treatment. The necessary equipment needed to be carried in/out, the safe movement of the patient to the cot, patient movement up/down stairs, performing CPR while administering drug, and many other tasks require more hands then the three personnel on the ambulance have to provide. Therefore, in order to provide the best care possible to the patient without delay the engine responds as well.
e. The ladder truck is often observed at calls where an engine would normally be found. The reason for this is simple; we have four engines in our fleet and each is assigned to a station. We have no reserve engine as we should; so when one of the engines breaks down or requires regularly scheduled service, the ladder track takes its place. Although the ladder truck is quite large, it does provide the best risk benefit coverage for our residents in the absence of an engine. The value in replacing an engine with the truck is that response is based on the same versatility as the engine which was described earlier. Further, since the truck carries water, medical equipment, ladders, hose and a variety of specialized equipment, it can respond effectively to any type call.
1. We do not have open scheduled classes. If you have 6 or more people, we will then schedule a class for you.
2. If you want a class for your business, the same above rules apply.

Why do I get a message that “an age conflict exists for this class”?When you are choosing which family member to register for the program, you need to make sure you are using the drop down list to choose the correct person. The system defaults to the first person listed in the household which is usually either mom or dad. If the family member has not been set-up with a birth date or if the birth date was inputted incorrectly that could also cause the age conflict.

Even though the water system is designed so that water has several routes to reach any location, generally speaking, most mains tend to flow in one direction. Water travels slowly through the water mains and sediment settles at the bottom of the main. The flushing program reverses the flow of the water in the main. The reverse in flow direction flushes the sediment from the system through the hydrants. We flush the hydrant until the water runs clear.
When a resident uses their water while the main on their street is being flushed they bring the discolored water into their home. The discoloration is just the sediment and it is safe to drink, it just isn’t too appealing (the sediment does have bits of rust, in it). The best way to purge a service of the discolored water is to run cold water until the water runs clear. I suggest using the bathtub faucet because it flows more water. The water should run clear in 10-20 minutes, unless your service is very long, then it may take longer.
If you have aerators on your faucets you might want to rinse them out in case the screen caught any debris. If your hot water is discolored, it means that you pulled the sediment into the water tank. You should flush out your service with the cold water faucets and then, when you are sure you have purged the pipes in your home and everything is running clear, you should run your hot water and try to clear that up.
