Warming Shelters

In the event of a power outage, Village Hall and the Deerfield Police Department lobby (850 Waukegan Road) are available as warming shelters during business hours. After hours, the Police Department is available with limited services, but further warming shelter locations will be made available to those in need. 

Check on your Neighbors and Pets

Remember to check on your neighbors and the elderly during this time. Also take extra precautions regarding your pets. It is important to monitor the status and changes of the hazardous winter spell via weather broadcasts. 

Prevent Frozen Pipes

With the current cold spell, it's important to take precautions against frozen pipes in your home. Check out the following tips to prevent your pipes from cracking and bursting:

  • Turn off and drain sprinkler/irrigation systems.
  • Identify areas in your home that are prone to freezing.
  • Know how to shut off your water.
  • Close off drafty areas. 
  • Insulate or wrap heat tape around water pipes.
  • Keep cabinet doors open under kitchen/bathroom sinks. 
  • Run water at a trickle with both hot and cold. 

For issues regarding a frozen water meter or service line, contact Public Works at 847.317.7245.

Report Power Outages to ComEd

In these severe conditions, ComEd is asking residents to report any outages or downed power lines immediately online, with the mobile app or via phone at 800.334.7661
