Rosemont officials: We're prepared for emergency situations like Las Vegas
Authorities in tourist venue-heavy Rosemont said Monday they are prepared and taking proper security precautions in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
In a statement, Public Safety Department Chief Donald E. Stephens III wrote that the department's sworn officers continually train and prepare for any number of emergency situations.
"The Rosemont Public Safety Department understands the Village of Rosemont is a unique area with multiple entertainment venues and a hub for tourism," Stephens III said. "As such, we are constantly reviewing security plans and protocols, along with emergency medical training, planning and scenarios."
The Northwest suburb is not only home to some 4,200 residents, but it hosts an estimated 75,000 visitors a day, drawn to venues including the Allstate Arena, Rosemont Theatre, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Fashion Outlets of Chicago and MB Financial Park.
