In 2018 Illinois Fire Safety Alliance along with the Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshal instituted a smoke alarm program that provides educational opportunities as well as smoke alarm installations to "at-risk" homes with costs covered by funding from both IFSA and OFSM. Prospect Heights Fire Protection District proudly participates in this program and our installation statistics are included in the results.

Here's a summary taken from the website:

2018 Recorded Data:

¨ 99 Illinois fire departments from 34 different counties participating in the program

¨ 4,6 55 10-year concealed battery smoke alarms distributed to Illinois fire departments

¨ 2,945 10-year concealed battery smoke alarms installed in Illinois homes

¨ 980 Illinois homes now protected with new smoke alarms

¨ 2,381 (1,099 high-risk) Illinois residents educated on smoke alarm maintenance, home fire safety, and home fire escape plans as well as protected by new smoke alarms

¨ 80% of pre-existing smoke alarms in homes that received new 10-year concealed battery smoke alarms were non-functional or were expired (1,481 of 1,848 pre-existing alarms)

This program is a great opportunity to get our residents' protected with smoke alarms that may not have them or cannot afford them. If you think you need one or have any questions call 847-253-8060 and we can schedule a visit.
