Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB)

Joint Emergency Telephone System Board

In 2017 the Libertyville ETSB was dissolved due to State statute requiring the elimination of "paper ETSB's" (those which did not operate their own Public Safety Answering Point).

Due to this legislation, the Village's of Libertyville, Vernon Hills, and Lincolnshire created a Joint Emergency Telephone System Board (JETSB) in the spring of 2017.  This Board, made up equally of representatives from public safety and Village administration from each Village; is responsible for managing 9-1-1 surcharges.  These surcharges are utilized to help fund the Vernon Hills Police/Countryside Fire Consolidated Communications Center, located in the Vernon Hills Police Department.

The JETSB meets on the following dates in 2018 at the Vernon Hills Police Department, starting at 2pm.:

March 13

June 12

September 11

December 11

All meetings are open to the public.
