Section of Route 59 will be closed June THIS WEEKEND for culvert installation

Closed 9PM Friday, all weekend; reopens early Monday. Detours will be provided; motorists should expect delays Contractors from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) expect to close the area beginning at 9PM Friday, June 13, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. The section of road will be closed throughout the weekend, and the road is expected to be reopened by the morning of Monday, June 16. A detour will be posted directing all motorists to use Ogden Avenue via North Aurora Road and Aurora Avenue. Local traffic will be permitted on Route 59 between Glacier Park Avenue and Aurora Avenue.

However, unforeseen conditions were encountered that will require the full road closure to complete the installation in an expedited manner.

Dear Brookdale Neighbors,
I would like to introduce you to Naperville CERT (Community Emergency Response Team). This organization trains citizens to prepare for the disasters which could affect our area. If a major disaster hit our community, and overwhelmed the first responders, citizens would be on their own for a period of time. CERT training prepares you to take care of yourself, your family, and your neighbors during these situations. The Basic CERT class is about 20 hours of combined classroom and hands on activities. This class is free for anyone age 18 and older who lives or works in Naperville.
There are three opportunities to take the Basic CERT class in 2014. The first session runs February 19, 26, March 5, 12, and 15. The second one runs April 16, 23, 30 and May 7 and 10. A fall class is scheduled for October 8, 15, 22, 29 and November 1. Classes are held one evening a week for four weeks and conclude with a Saturday class which has a field exercise in the afternoon to practice all the things you learned. Evening classes are held at the Electric Service Center on Aurora Avenue. The Saturday class and field exercise is held at Fire Station #4 on Brookdale Road.
The Basic CERT class covers the following topics:
• How to stay safe in all severe weather situations, including floods
• How to develop a family plan and assemble an emergency supply kit
• Fire safety and suppression with practice using a fire extinguisher
• Triage and treatment of injuries (open airways with head tilt, stop bleeding, splinting broken bones, treating burns, etc.)
• Light Search and Rescue Carry techniques
• Cribbing to remove victims under debris
• Terrorism and the Psychology of dealing with disaster victims
• And more …………
Consider attending one of the upcoming series of classes. To register, visit the CERT website, www.NaperCERT.org. Under the Basic CERT Training tab you will find the link to an application and hold harmless form. Class registration closes two weeks before the start of the class to allow time for the Naperville Police Department to run a background check on class participants.
Visit the Naperville CERT website or contact BHA member, Vicki Parrish, Photolens@sbcglobal.net for more information.
