The 2020 Census will be counting every person living within our fire district. Therefore, it is important that our residents participate in 2020 Census as the numbers from this census will determine congressional representation and affect all funding and grant decisions from the state and federal government for the next 10 years.

Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire-online, by phone or by mail. Be counted…please respond to the Census!

For more information, please visit the Village of Vernon Hills’ website at: or visit to learn more about the 2020 Census and why it matters and how it can help shape our community.
