To improve communication and enhance the safety of those living, working and visiting in Skokie, the Village of Skokie has an AM advisory radio station. The frequency of the station is 1660 AM on the AM dial. New AM radios in cars and other radios will be able to receive this frequency.
Even though the power of the station is ten watts or less, the signal should be received throughout the Skokie area. The primary use of this station is to inform the public of emergency conditions in the area and how to respond to them. An emergency could consist of severe weather to hazardous material spills, alternate-side parking when there are two or more inches of snow on the ground or any other condition that could affect the well-being of the public in the Skokie area.
This non-commercial radio station is monitored by the Village, and in non-emergency situations, the station will broadcast emergency preparedness and Village of Skokie information 24-hours a day, seven-days a week.
For further information about the Village's advisory radio station, please contact the Village Manager's Office at 847-933-8210.
