Cold weather tips!


Remember​ a few simple steps can help you to protect your pipes from freezing. Start by opening the cabinet doors to help warm up the pipes. You can prevent freezing by keeping a small trickle of water running through the pipes on extra cold days.

When spending time outdoors during cold weather, watch for signs of frostbite, including skin that is whitish and stiff and will feel numb rather than painful.  If you notice these signs, take immediate action.

  • Wear several layers of lightweight clothing.The air between the layers of clothing acts as insulation to keep you warmer.
  • Cover your head. You lose as much as 50 percent of your body heat through your head.
  • Wear mittens rather than fingered gloves. The contact of your fingers keeps your hands warmer.
  • Wear warm leg coverings and heavy socks or two pairs of lightweight socks.
  • Cover your ears and the lower part of your face.  The ears, nose, chin and forehead are most susceptible to frostbite.  Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect the lungs from directly inhaling extremely cold air.

​Finally, remember your pets! ​Animals suffer from frostbite and hypothermia

Enhanced Paramedic Training

Our Fire Department is ahead of schedule in supporting an unfunded mandate by Loyola Hospital. Loyola requires that all system paramedics be certified in the areas of Advanced Cardiac, Pediatric and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support or risk losing your license by the end of 2019.

We are pleased to say that the Fire Department has now been certified ahead of schedule. These advanced skills add to the abilities of our Emergency Medical Services team.

This is especially important since we had a 13% increase in emergency responses in 2017 and are currently averaging 13 calls per day in 2018. If we continue at this pace, our call volume will increase by 27% this year. This increase in training and enhanced skill set will benefit the citizens of Franklin Park.
