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.




Oak Lawn has three (3) fire stations and staffs the following equipment:

                Two (2) Engines
                One (1) Truck 
                One (1) Squad
                Three (3) Ambulances
                One (1) Battalion Chief

The village is divided into three response districts.  The type of call determines how many resources are deployed to each call.

  • Ambulance call – Advanced Life Support Ambulance and fire engine.    

    You may have asked yourself, why does the fire department send a fire engine? The engine company crew responds to assist and support the ambulance crew, depending on the severity of the call.

  • Minor Fire Call – One or two companies depending on the nature of the incident.
  • Fire Call – For reported fire emergencies the department deploys the companies from two of its fire stations, plus the assistance (automatic aid) from neighboring communities.    

    Automatic aid agreements are between two towns, where each responds to each other’s calls for emergency service.  Current auto aid agreements:

    • Alsip
    • Burbank
    • Chicago Ridge
    • Evergreen Park
    • Hometown
