September 11th Memorial


The Glenside Fire Protection District with the assistance of the Glenside Foreign Fire Insurance Board have created a 9/11 Memorial consisting of artifacts from all three attack sites to honor those who were lost in the tragic and historic event on September 11, 2001. 

The display is permanent and we welcome everyone to come visit  during our business hours of 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday through   Friday at the fire station.  

Glenside Fire Chief Russell Wood said “we don’t want to forget that day or the impact it had on our country…it was the worst day in our firefighter history...343 firefighters died.”

The memorial being displayed by the Glenside Fire District is a tribute and remembrance to the dedicated and courageous individuals who lost their lives on that fateful September 11th morning, including 343 firefighters and EMS personnel, 72 law enforcement officers and 2,996 civilians.  Included in the display are artifacts from all three attack sites – a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, debris from the crash site in Pennsylvania and a piece of limestone from the Pentagon building.

 Let us not forget!




DuPage Public Safety Communications (DU-COMM) has announced its launching of the Smart911 program.  Smart911 is a free-to-the-user secure and confidential program, which allows citizens to enter personal information to be displayed when 9-1-1 is called from a landline or cellular phone.

In a leading step to improve incident outcome, the Smart911 program is aimed at strengthening and expanding the current 9-1-1 program by providing additional critical information about the caller to the 9-1-1 call taker.  The program which includes basic information such as home address, is also capable of including information on disabilities, medical and rescue-related conditions, and children’s photos.  The registrant is provided the opportunity to enter the information he or she wants made available to the 9-1-1 dispatch center.

Additionally, Smart911 is a national program allowing the caller’s information to be made available in areas of the country where the service is also provided.  The same information that the registrant provided in DuPage County, would also be available to the 9-1-1 call taker outside the DuPage County area when 9-1-1 is dialed.

To decide if the Smart911 service is right for you and your family, or to simply sign up, please view the links below:

Glendale Heights Emergency Communications Center now offers a free, new service to help you when you call 9-1-1. Once you've signed up, first responders will be provided important information that will help them address your emergency.
