With the State of Illinois moving into Phase 4 on Friday, June 26, 2020, the Village reopening will move to the second stage of our reopening plan effective June 29, 2020.

The second stage will include:

  • All employees and visitors will be required to wear masks when entering any Village owned building and observe social distancing whenever possible.
  • Public meetings and social events are limited to the lesser of 50 guests or 50% of overall room capacity.
  • Masks are required and social distancing is observed whenever possible.  This includes Board of Trustee meetings and all other public meetings.
  • All Departments of Village Hall will be open, including the second floor and basement.




To fulfill our commitment, our department consists of 67 uniformed personnel who are prepared to offer these services from three fire stations located within Oak Lawn. These facilities are staffed twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year.

Under the direction of the Fire Chief, the mission of the fire department is achieved through four organizational categories.  Each category is under the direction and control of the Deputy Fire Chief who oversees three Shift Battalion Chiefs of Suppression and three Administrative Bureau Chiefs of Training/Safety, Fire Prevention & Public Education, and Emergency Medical Services.
