Orland Park officials is requesting residents' assistance in clearing away snow and ice blocking fire hydrants around the Village. Snow and ice should be removed around 3 feet away from hydrants in order for emergency personnel to access a hydrant in case of a fire.

In an effort to protect residents and aid the Orland Fire Protection District (OFPD) in a fire emergency, the Village of Orland Park has initiated a program which appeals to local students to shovel-out fire hydrants. Students participating in this initiative will earn community service hours for each hydrant cleared of snow.

In order to earn the credit, students should send before and after photos of the hydrant that was cleared. Along with the photos, the student should include the address of the hydrant location, their name, student ID and the school they attend. This information can be emailed to snowangels@orlandpark.org.

Students wishing to participate in this effort should contact their school's community service representative.
