Hazardous Spill in Beach Park - April 25, 2019
Approximately 140 first-responders were deployed to an active hazardous materials incident at the intersection of Green Bay Road and 29th Street on April 25, 2019. The spill of anhydrous ammonia had a major impact on the people of Beach Park and surrounding communities. The village worked closely with the emergency responders to assure that our residents were notified as quickly as possible while the situation unfolded. Residents who are registered in the village emergency notification system received updates via direct phone call, e-mail or texts at 5:45 am, 8:55 am and 10:00 am.

The village appreciates the work of the Beach Park Fire Protection District, the Lake County Sheriff’s Department, police officers from nearly twenty area police departments, and all of the firefighters who risked their lives today to help others. This kind of cooperation is what makes this part of Lake County a wonderful place to live.
Beach Park Fire Protection District and City of Zion Fire Department Proposed Consolidation
There are four Fire Protection Districts who respond to calls within the village limits, Beach Park, Newport, Winthrop Harbor and Warren-Waukegan. All four of these districts are separate governmental entities with their own governance structure, budgets, ability to tax and specific operations. The Village of Beach Park has no oversight or authority over any of these four Fire Protection Districts. Residents with questions regarding the proposed Fire Department consolidation between the Beach Park Fire Protection District and the City of Zion, should contact one of those entities directly.
