Orland Fire Protection District Coffee & Conversation June 22
The Orland Fire Protection District will host their regular community “Coffee & Conversation” public information program Thursday, June 22, 2017 beginning at 9 am.
The events feature officials of the Orland Fire Protection District discussing safety and emergency issues with participants. The doors open at 9 am with coffee & snacks, and a speaker will address attendees from 9:30 until 11 am.
This program is co-sponsored by Aishling Companion Home Care and the topic will address the differences between Home Care & Home Placement Agencies to assist seniors and those in need.
The OFPD is partnering with Aishling, from Aishling Companion Home Care, for each coffee presentation.
Coffee & Conversation is a monthly program that will be held usually on the 4th Thursday of each month (except in November when it will be the 3rd Thursday because of Thanksgiving). Topics will change so check back here or at the Orland Fire Protection District website for more details.
The meetings will be held at the OFPD Headquarters, 9790 W. 151st Street in Orland Park.

The Open House features a wide range of emergency response demonstrations with firefighters addressing realistic simulations involving fighting fires in multi-story and single-story buildings, lifesavings in fires and vehicles accidents, water rescue, underwater recovery, gas emission threats, and the use of the district’s robot controlled response to bomb threats.
The LIFESTAR emergency response helicopter will also land during the Open House usually around lunchtime although the time will be announced closer to the date. In addition, the fire department displays its equipment and apparatus.
There is also a kid’s section so young people can learn about procedures and responses to emergency situations and participate in fun activities including Face Painting, provide free give-a-ways, and a display of fire equipment and clothing firefighters wear and carry when battling fires or responding to emergencies.
