Elburn—The Kane County Office of Emergency Management Agency and the Elburn Fire Department will conduct Helicopter Landing Zone Safety training within the village of Elburn on Wednesday, April 25. The training will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. and last until approximately 8:30 p.m.

A landing zone will be established immediately behind the village of Elburn Veterans Memorial Tank on East North Street. As an alternate location if conditions do not permit, a second landing zone could be established in the dry retention basin just to the northwest of Elburn Public Works and south of the Meadows Senior Housing Complex on Dempsey Drive.

While the helicopter is landing and taking off, which there will only be one touchdown, KCOEM and Elburn Fire personnel will keep the actual landing area secure and keep bystanders at a safe distance.
