In order to reduce the risk of exposure, the Lockport Township Fire District will be following the recommendations of the CDC and Governor Pritzker’s office for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis:

  • All of our Fire Stations and Administrative offices are in full operation, but will be closed to outside visitors.  If you need any assistance or have any questions, please call our Administrative office at (815)838-3287, Mon-Fri 8am-4pm.

Emergency Responses:

The Lockport Township Fire District continues to work throughout the community and we come into contact with many people.  We are taking the utmost precautions to ensure the safety of our personnel and the residents we care for during this pandemic.  Our Firefighter/Paramedics are wearing a higher level of Personnel Protective Equipment on every call and will be screening the residences we respond to in order to take the proper precautions for both responders and patients.

EMS Transports:

Temporarily, hospitals in our area have restricted visitors in their facilities, with the exceptions of parents of minors. The Fire District will be following the same procedure as it applies to the family of the patients we transport to these hospitals.  Once the hospitals start allowing visitors, the Fire District will follow suit.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Severe Weather Safety

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air extending from the base of a thunderstorm down to the ground. Tornadoes are capable of completely destroying well-made structures, uprooting trees, and hurling objects through the air like deadly missiles. Tornadoes can occur at any time of day or night and at any time of the year. Although tornadoes are most common in the Central Plains and the southeastern United States, they have been reported in all 50 states.

If you know what to do before, during and after a tornado, you will minimize your risk of injury and increase your chances of survival. You'll also find links to research, past events other topics of interest as well as downloadable safety handouts about thunderstorms, lightning, and tornadoes.

If you, or someone you know, has been a victim of a tornado, please share your story so we can prevent others from becoming a victim. When you write, please note that NWS has permission to use your story and, if possible, let us know the town and state you were in and the year the event took place.

On Wednesday, June 17th at 0513hrs the Lockport Township Fire Protection District responded to a reported structure fire in the 3500 Blk of S. State Street in unincorporated Lockport Township.  Fire companies arrived to find a vacant two story residence that had a one story addition off the back.  The one story portion of the structure was found to have heavy fire thru the roof.  As companies were stretching initial hose lines to the back of the building, there was an explosion in the two story portion of the structure.  Debris from the explosion did cause minor injuries to one member of a company that was working on the exterior of the building.  That member was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for evaluation where he was treated and released.

 

The incident was upgraded to a Full Still which brought additional resources to the scene from East Joliet, Homer, and NW Homer fire departments.  The fire was brought under control in approximately 30 minutes but companies spent about two hours on scene to completely extinguish the fire.

 

Homer, Lemont, New Lenox, Plainfield, and Romeoville Fire Departments provided station coverage while companies worked at the scene.

 

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Lockport Fire Investigators.
