Orland Park Issues Code Red Alert With Weather Related InformationThe following recorded message has been distributed via the village's notification system, Code Red.

Please remain on the line for an important message from the Village of Orland Park.

ComEd is responding to numerous power outages throughout the village. They have extra crews in Orland Park working to restore power.

Please be patient with village plow crews as the heavy, wet snow is challenging. Crews have been throughout the night with new teams coming on this morning to continue to clear village streets.

Use caution when moving snow as it is a very heavy, wet snow.

Parking on all village streets is prohibited once two inches of snow fall.

Parked vehicles must be kept off the street for 8 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.

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 hazard at the end of your driveway.

Check on elderly and disabled friends, family and neighbors.

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
