Public Safety Open House

Each year, the Naperville Police and Fire Departments "Partner for Prevention" during Public Safety Month. The 2018 Public Safety Open House will be on Saturday, September 29, 2018. This must-see, all-ages event is held annually on Naperville's Public Safety Campus, 1380 Aurora Ave.


The Public Safety Open House is an event the entire community will enjoy while gaining valuable safety information for their families, neighborhoods and workplaces.

What to Expect

This must-see event will include a variety of activities including an auto extrication and simulated DUI arrest along with a helicopter exercise (weather permitting) and a flashover fire demonstration, among others.

A large display of Fire and Police vehicles and equipment will also be on-site.

Visits by Sparky and McGruff and tons of safety information and activities will be back again this year, as well. You won’t want to miss it!


The purpose of this event is to disseminate important crime and fire prevention information to the residents of Naperville and to encourage citizen action regarding crime and fire prevention strategies. Both departments firmly believe that citizens are the number one defense against fire and crime and want to spread the word that residents need to “Prepare, Practice and Prevent” in order to keep their families safe.
