The Village of Orland Park is bracing for the extreme temperatures predicted for the next few days.

“The extreme weather conditions have everyone’s attention,” said Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin. “We’re asking that residents check on elderly and disabled family, friends and neighbors to make sure they’re okay.”

The Orland Park Police Station, at 15100 South Ravinia Avenue, is the village’s designated cooling center.

“Those who need a cooling center should come to the police station and, if necessary, we can open other village buildings for those who need them,” said Police Chief Tim McCarthy.

The village reminds residents that its water conservation program, in effect annually from May 15 to September 15, permits outdoor water use from seven to eleven, both morning and night according to the Odd/Even Address System.

Homes with addresses ending with even numbers may sprinkle from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. on even numbered days only. Those ending in odd numbers may sprinkle on odd numbered days, also from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. only.
