Clear Snow Around Hydrants


The Village is asking residents and business owners to clean around fire hydrants when cleaning snow from their properties and driveways Please clear an area of about 3 feet around each hydrant to allow firefighters to effectively connect to and open a hydrant. Please do not dump snow into the street or onto a neighbor’s property. If you cannot participate, contact the Fire Department at 847-678-2400. Thank you for your cooperation!

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

Police Officer and Firefighter of the Year Honored


The Franklin Park-Manila Lions Club honored our Police and Fire Department members and thanked them for their service to our community. A special award was presented to Police Officer of the Year, Rob Emmett, an 18 year veteran of the department. While attending a Fourth of July celebration, Officer Emmett found a man lying on the ground. He and his wife Michele, who is a nurse, performed CPR and were able to resuscitate the person who was in full cardiac arrest. Had it not been for their efforts, the man would have died.

Lt. Tim Monroe was named Firefighter of the Year after recently retiring with more than 27 years of dedicated service. He was known to be a fair and impartial leader who prided himself on hearing all sides before making a decision. Educating his crews was his highest priority and he often went on emergency calls to use the incidents as a training opportunity. He will remain in the community and will run the Park District’s hockey program.

What Makes a Community Great?

Though we have had a mild winter thus far, if you have lived here long enough, you know the wind will blow and the snow will fly. Our Public Works staff does a great job clearing our Village streets. But nothing takes the place of neighbors helping neighbors. If possible, when you are out shoveling snow for your property, consider helping others to clear their path too. Some senior citizens are not able to participate in the Village’s subsided snow removal and need help clearing sidewalks and driveways. Making sure sidewalks are cleared throughout the town will help everyone.Many residents, including the elderly walk on the sidewalks to get to school, work or to access public transportation. Cleared sidewalks allow postal workers and delivery people to move around with ease. It also means that our emergency responders will have quick access to homes.

Clearing around hydrants can save time for firefighters and could possibly save a life. Winter weather can be isolating for some, so visit a lonely neighbor, share a favorite recipe or a good story and let the holiday spirit be present in our community throughout the year! If you have concerns about someone, call the Village and request a well-being check.

Meals on Wheels are also available in Franklin Park and can be arranged for someone who cannot easily get out of their house. Albert Schweitzer said that genuine progress is made hand-to–hand and heart-to-heart. Franklin Parkers demonstrate that spirit every day. We are a generous, caring community. Our dedication to family-friendly neighborhoods has made us a safe, welcoming and pleasant Village. What Makes a Community Great? YOU DO!
