The Downers Grove Fire Department will be conducting training exercises near Downers Grove North High School the week of November 7, 2011. The training will not disrupt classes and will occur after school buses have cleared the area, around 8:15 a.m., and will conclude by approximately 1:00 p.m. each day.
Training will be in the area bordered by Saratoga on the west, Grant on the south, Prince to the east, and the student parking lot on the north. Traffic may be affected during these exercises.
While no actual burning will take place, residents may see smoke produced by a water-based smoke machine to simulate real-life conditions for training.
