Extra Alarm Fire and Extra Alarm Ambulance Alarm at Depke Center in Vernon Hills

The Lincolnshire Fire Department called for an extra alarm response for
fire equipment and ambulances at the Depke Juvenile Justice Center at
24647 North Milwaukee Avenue in Vernon Hills. Some area fire departments
were unable to respond to the extra alarm because of responses to storm
incidents in their own towns. Other fire departments were able to fill
in.
