The Kane County Office of Emergency Management is offering Youth Emergency and Disaster Preparedness classes this summer for children in 1st-3rd grades. In this class, students will learn about the difference between an emergency, a disaster, and a hazard as well as what types of emergencies to be prepared for, protective actions to take, family emergency communications plans, disaster supply kits, Go Bags, gun safety and what to do during severe weather. A First Aid/CPR instructor will teach age-appropriate basic first aid, including responsive vs. unresponsive, phoning for help, when to call 911, personal protective equipment, the importance of handwashing, finding the problem, stopping bleeding and choking. The class will end with the kids receiving a Go Bag and a tour of the building.
The classes are not intended to scare kids, but rather age-appropriate, fun, and educational to build confidence and empower them to be prepared.
Classes will be held June 4 at the City of Batavia Municipal Center, 100 N. Island Ave. Registration is required as space is limited. To register visit:
1st - 3rd grade (9:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M.): Registration through eventbrite.
4th - 8th grade (12:30 P.M. - 2:30 P.M.): Registration through eventbrite.
The Batavia Fireworks Committee is selling yard signs which show your support for the 2022 Batavia Fireworks Show and Sky Concert. Signs are $25 and all proceeds go to support the fireworks show. Each year the committee has to raise $40,000 each year to put on the 4th of July fireworks show. Taxpayer dollars have never been used to pay for these fireworks, so volunteers run several fundraisers for the cause. To order your sign, complete your order at bataviafireworks.org and a sign will be delivered to your lawn. Or, visit Batavia's Utility Billing office at City Hall. 100 N. Island Ave., between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, where you can pay for a sign and take one home.
The City of Batavia does not allow burning leaves or anything else other than seasoned firewood and charcoal. Fires need to be less than 3-feet in diameter by 2-feet high except with a permit.
