(225 ILCS 225/18) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 116.318)
    Sec. 18. Whenever the Department finds that an emergency exists, including those within programs approved in Section 10, which requires immediate action to protect the public health, it may, without any administrative procedure and without notice, hearing, or bond bring an action for a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction to require that such action be taken as the court may deem necessary to meet the emergency, including the suspension or revocation of the license. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Act such order shall be effective immediately. Such action shall be brought by the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation occurred or by the Attorney General in the name of the People of the State of Illinois. When such conditions are abated, in the opinion of the Department, the Department may request and the court may enter an order that the temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction be dissolved.
