Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

The Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) and the Chicago Police Department (CPD) have coordinated with Dr. Willie Wilson and his staff to provide City and department resources to mitigate traffic conditions and ensure public safety during the gas giveaway on Thursday, March 24. The public is urged to seek alternate routes in the area around participating stations. OEMC will be monitoring from the Operations Center to maintain public safety and provide awareness to city agencies. The procedures are as follows:

• There will be one entry and exit point at each station with volunteers from Dr. Wilson’s staff along with a site leader providing direction.  

• Vehicles will be allowed to line-up at 7 a.m. Each vehicle will receive a sticker indicating position in line. Note: vehicles will not be allowed to line-up in advance, and all must have a sticker in order to receive the free gas.  

• Each station will be allotted $50 per car and can expect up to 400 cars per location. Estimated time is 4-5 hours. Note: this could differ per station. 

• No gas cans or other containers allowed.
