Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Illinois American Water is partnering with the Homer Township Fire Protection District and Northwest Homer Fire and Ambulance Protection District to improve emergency communications for residents in the Southwest region.
Illinois American Water is donating space on the elevated water storage tank in the Village of Homer Glen to both fire protection districts who will have public safety communication devices installed.

According to Robert Tutko, fire chief for the Homer Township Fire Protection District, both districts had been experiencing radio communication issues in the area. In cooperation with WESCOM, it was determined an additional receiver site was needed along Bell Road between 143rd and 159th Streets.
