Smart911 Emergency Notification System

Emergency Notification Systems, or ENS, are systems to provide mass notification of residents in the event of an emergency. In Palos Park we currently use the Smart911 system as a means to notify residents by phone.

Emergency Service & Disaster Agency (E.S.D.A.) Plan

The Palos Park Emergency Management Agency is here to help you and your family prepare for emergency situations. In most instances, your first reaction to any emergency can make a big difference. A highway spill of hazardous materials could mean instant evacuation. A winter storm could confine your family at home. An earthquake or tornado could isolate you from basic services like gas, water, telephone, and electricity for several days. The more informed you are about the type of possible emergency situations that can occur, the better prepared you will be.
