If you see lots of police officers and firefighters near Lincoln Elementary, 811 Chicago Ave. in Maywood, don’t be alarmed.
On Friday, police and fire departments from Bellwood, Broadview, Maywood and Melrose Park will be practicing a routine practice emergency drill with officials from Maywood-Melrose Park-Broadview Elementary School District 89, district officials said in a statement.
The emergency drill will start at around 8:30 a.m. and end in the early afternoon, officials said, adding that the training could include brief street closures at Chicago Ave. and 9th Ave.
Friday is Institute Day, so no students will be in attendance or involved in the training exercise, D89 officials said.
“During the training anyone near the school will see a large presence of emergency responders and may hear loud noises related to the training and exercises taking place,” officials stated. VFP
