CODE RED: Code Red Emergency Weather Alert Sent to Village Subscribers
Posted on 02/09/2018

THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE HAS BEEN ISSUED TO ALL OF THE VILLAGE'S CODE RED SUBSCRIBERS.

*** The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Orland Park area beginning this evening through Sunday with large accumulations expected.

Residents are reminded that parking on village streets is prohibited once two inches of snow fall.

Parked vehicles must be kept off the street for 10 hours after the storm to give plows time to clear your street. Primary routes are plowed first followed by secondary streets and cul de sacs.

Garbage and recycling pick up for Friday, February 9th will be delayed until Saturday, February 10th.

If physically able, clear the snow from the fire hydrants near your home, shoveling from the street so emergency personnel can access them.

Always move snow to the lawn and never to the street. Pushing snow into the street creates a dangerous, icy patch at the end of your driveway.

Check on elderly and disabled friends, family and neighbors to be sure they're okay.

The Orland Park Police Department, at 151st and Ravinia, is the village's primary warming center open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Not all roads in Orland Park are under the village's jurisdiction. The Public Works Department works closely with other agencies to keep the roads clear. For more information, visit orlandpark.org.

Be careful driving and travel only if necessary.

Thank you
