CHICAGO — Two snowmobiles previously used by the Navy in the Arctic Circle will be ready for blizzard-related emergencies that develop in the Round Lake area.

Round Lake Park is one of the few suburban police departments to own snowmobiles, said Chief George Filenko. One sled was loaned Tuesday to the Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District, with the other reserved for police use on the streets.
