Forecasters are predicting hot and humid weather conditions this Thursday July 18, 2019 until Sunday July 21, 2019. The Village, in cooperation with AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center La Grange, is prepared to provide temporary shelter for residents in need of this service between the hours of 10:00 am and 8:00 pm.
Residents are urged to check on relatives, friends and neighbors who may be vulnerable to heat-related illnesses or do not have access to air conditioning. Those especially susceptible to the effects of heat include infants and young children, the elderly, and the physically ill, particularly those with heart disease or high blood pressure.
If you, a family member, or a neighbor are in need of such assistance, go directly to La Grange Memorial Hospital located at 5101 Willow Springs Road. Use the main emergency room entrance, ask for security, and indicate the need for the cooling center. Hospital security will provide an escort to the center.
