Residents can now rest easy thanks to the Saturday, Oct. 12 annual Winnetka Police and Fire Department Open House, where guests learned the many ways local first responders keep the village safe. 

Fire Chief Alan Berkowsky greeted guests, pleased to have the opportunity to teach residents about this year’s theme: “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape.”
