Warming centers available in Park Forest

Village Hall

Officials in Park Forest are urging residents to stay indoors, if at all possible, Tuesday evening through Thursday morning as potentially record-breaking temperatures are expected to sweep thru the area.

All Village services, including Village Hall, will remain open and warming centers will be available.

Pace and Jolly Trolley will suspend service, and Metra will reduce service as a result of the conditions.

Those with no choice but to brave the elements are advised even just 5 minutes outdoors can be dangerous, experts say.

Residents are also encouraged to check on the elderly during these extreme conditions.

The following warming center are available in Park Forest:

Village Hall
350 Victory Drive
Park Forest, IL
9 a.m - 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday

Park Forest Police Department
200 Lakewood Blvd.
24 hours a day / 7 days a week

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker today announced a disaster proclamation issued ahead of "potentially historic" weather.

"I'm urging every Illinoisian to take this weather very seriously. These conditions are and can be life threatening. Even short periods of exposure to this type of weather can be dangerous...this is weather where even five minutes of exposure can have very serious health consequences," Pritzker said.
