About the Challenge

The Paradigm Challenge is an annual competition developed by Project Paradigm (a private foundation) and the American Red Cross to inspire youth aged 7 to 18 to affect positive change in the world.

The first annual challenge aims to generate new ideas to prevent injuries and fatalities from home fires - America's #1 disaster threat. We invite youth aged 7 to 18 (as of May 1, 2015) to accept The Challenge, build a team, become problem solvers, learn about homefires, and help save lives.

Members of the public will vote for their favorite finalist from May 11, 2015 to May 25, 2015.

Thank You for keeping the Wreath Red

The “Keep the Wreath Red” campaign was a great success again this year thanks to all of your hard work!

Outside each of the 4 fire stations the wreath was covered in red bulbs. If a fire occurs during the holiday season caused by holiday decorations, a bulb will be changed to white.

Thanks to our safety conscious citizens we were able to keep the wreath red for the entire holiday season.

The Lemont Fire District truly appreciates everyone’s help to make it another fire safe holiday season!

"Adopt A Hydrant" Program

Help the Fire District– Adopt a Fire Hydrant

Please help the Fire District by adopting the fire hydrant closest to your home or business and keep it free of snow during the winter.

Please make it a point to uncover your fire hydrant after each and every snowfall. Clear a path approximately 3 feet around the hydrant and shovel a path from the street or roadway up to the fire hydrant. These actions will allow the Fire District to quickly locate the fire hydrant, obtain a water supply for firefighting activities, and give the fire crews room to work with this hydrant should the need arise.

Please consider helping a neighbor with a medical condition or who is elderly, by shoveling out a hydrant in front of their home. This act of kindness will benefit the entire neighborhood.

At a fire, firefighters must quickly locate and gain a water supply source from the closest fire hydrant. A fire engine carries enough water on board for approximately 3 ½ minutes of firefighting. If a fire hydrant is buried by snow, it is difficult to find and valuable time must be spent digging it out. It may take from 4 to 6 minutes to dig out a fire hydrant buried by snow. The delay in gaining a water supply from a fire hydrant may disrupt the timely manner in which firefighters are able to fight the fire and may allow a fire to grow. Fire doubles in size every 20 seconds.

The "Adopt A Hydrant" program is an informal program, therefore it is not necessary to advise the district of which hydrants you will be clearing snow from.

On behalf of the entire Lemont Fire Protection District, thank you for keeping Lemonts fire hydrants clear of snow and keeping our neighborhoods safe!
