New campaign to provide free smoke alarms

“Be Alarmed!”, a new program being pushed by the State Fire Marshal and Illinois Fire Safety Alliance will provide free smoke alarms, education about fire safety, and proper smoke alarm installation to people throughout the state through their local fire departments.

Fire departments that participate in the program will receive smoke alarms with 10-year sealed batteries which firefighters will install in people’s homes. 

According to the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance, six out of 10 residential fire deaths happen in homes because the smoke alarm doesn’t work or none are installed.
