Helping Your Community in Times of Disaster

The Village Officials of the City of Countryside, the Villages of La Grange, La Grange Park, Western Springs, Hodgkins, and Indian Head Park, and the unincorporated area of La Grange Highlands are seeking to establish a list of Community Service Volunteers to assist our Regional Pharmaceutical Distribution Program in the event of a health related disaster.

 

Volunteers are needed to provide support to officials in the overall operations during a health incident/disaster of significance with staffing distribution sites, providing clerical duties, message routing, and runner services.  Volunteers must be able to stand and/or sit for extended periods of time, lift up to 10 pounds, and traverse uneven or hazardous walking areas at these local distribution sites. 

 

Residents with special skills like Public Health workers, physicians, nurses, truck or bus drivers, ham radio operators, clergy, computer technicians, and bilingual speakers are especially needed.

 

In you are interested, please complete the form attached below and return it to the Village of La Grange Park at 447 North Catherine Avenue, La Grange Park, Illinois 60526, or via email to Chief McCollum at dmccollum@lagrangepark.org. For additional information, please call Chief McCollum at 708-354-0225. Orientation and training will be provided.
