The National Weather Service is predicting high temperatures through Tuesday night. We are asking all residents to please stay hydrated and refrain from doing any type of outside physical labor during this time frame. We are also asking that you continue to check on the elderly, whether it be family and/or neighbors, during this very important time. Young children and the elderly are extremely susceptible to heat related injuries and illnesses so it is imperative that we continue to monitor their well-being.
Cooling centers are located at 9560 Franklin Avenue, the Franklin Park Community Center and at 9711 Waveland at the Franklin Park Ice Arena. The cooling centers will be open from 8:00am to 9:00pm.
