CCH Residents – Update your fire/medical alarm company to your new dispatch provider!

The City of Country Club Hills Fire Department has been dispatched by Orland Central Communications since 2017 for fire and EMS emergencies.  We will be moving to ECOM Dispatch during the weeks of June 17-24.  This move is to continue to offer the best services to our residents, businesses, and guests.  This will increase our efficiency of our response as Country Club Hills Police and a large portion of our surrounding towns are dispatched by ECOM.  Communication between our police and aiding fire departments will also be streamlined as there is only one dispatch handling the information.

Here’s what you need to do as a resident or business owner to help in the transition. 

Contact your Fire alarm or medical alarm company and tell them Orland Central Dispatch will no longer be dispatching your Fire and EMS response.  ECOM Dispatch will receive all alarm calls from you monitoring company.  The number they call should be changed to 708 799 7017.  This will be the number on file with your alarm company that they will use for emergency response, new installs or alarm issues and service.

Please contact your alarm company and change the number effective any time after June 17, 2024 but before June 24, 2024.

Thank you for your cooperation

Please contact the Fire Department at 708-798-8488 and ask to speak to Chief Hullinger, Deputy Chief Stegenga or Assistant Chief Agpawa if you have any questions regarding this info.

3a-6a Parking Ordinance Reminder

We wanted to remind our Community Members that the City of Country Club Hills has an ordinance stating that it is unlawful to park any vehicle on any street within the City between the hours of 3:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M. (see 6.2.02A for exact)

If overnight parking is needed, an overnight parking exemption may be requested by contacting the Police Department at (708) 798-3191 x2, or by completing your online submission prior to 3:00 A.M. If a vehicle is not called in or submitted online prior to 3:00 A.M., a citation will be issued.  In the event the website is down, the vehicle information must be called into the Police Department to be placed on the list. Please note that parking exemptions could be voided/rejected due to snow removal or other circumstances. The following information is required when calling in for permission: vehicle make, model, plate number and vehicle location.

Also, a reminder of the City Ordinance amendment passed in February of 2021 (6.2.02A) which states “A property owner overnight may park his or her vehicle in front of that owner’s house for three (3) days in any thirty (30) day period.”

Some important items to note: Only 3 parking exemptions per vehicle for every 30 days is allowed.  Also, your license plate entry must be correct and exact when submitted.  The 3a-6a parking exemptions submission page can be found at  Thank you to our Community Members for your continued support and feel free to contact us for any questions/assistance 708-798-3191 x2.
