In efforts to help residents plan ahead for severe weather, Lombard is recognizing Illinois Severe Weather Preparedness Week, and reminding citizens to connect with the Village for information during emergency situations. 

Severe weather can happen anywhere, at any time, creating potentially life-threatening situations. During extreme weather emergencies, the Village of Lombard will communicate to citizens through the following resources:

Messages are not restricted to weather events and may contain potentially lifesaving information in the event of any emergency situation. Text messages and email alerts are especially useful for residents who are on the go, and not likely to be home to receive a phone call from emergency telephone systems. 

“We can’t control when severe weather impacts our community. The important thing is that we take the time to prepare ahead of time,” said Lombard Fire Chief Rick Sander. “In the event of an emergency, we will use the resources available, including our website and social media, to communicate important information. I encourage all residents to take a moment and connect with us.”
