Former Zero Gravity Building Being Used For Unexpectedly Awesome Purpose
Remember Zero Gravity, the popular teen dance club, in Woodridge that had tons of visitors from the Rockford area?
Well it closed earlier this year, and has since sat dormant.
That was until last weekend when the Lisle-Woodridge Fire Department started using it to train firefighters.
Zero Gravity is going from foam parties to firefighter practice.
The video from the Daily Herald shows firefighters cutting holes in the roof of Zero Gravity.
Zero Gravity was set to be demolished and turned into an assisted living facility says the Chicago Tribune.
That was before the local fire department came calling. According to the Daily Herald, "Joshua Jennings CEO of Missouri-based Cedarhurst Living. 'They (Lisle Woodridge Fire) asked us if they could perform drills there and it sounded like a great way to begin our relationship with the first responders.'"
