State Fire Marshal and Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Promote Be Alarmed!

On Monday, the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) and the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance (IFSA) promoted “Be Alarmed!” – a joint smoke alarm installation program that provides smoke alarms to Illinoisans through their local fire departments. 

“Fire safety is crucial in protecting our residents and communities. Smoke alarms offer crucial lifesaving early warning,” said State Fire Marshal Matt Perez. “This is a tremendous partnership with IFSA especially our local fire departments who are taking these extra steps to protect our communities.”

“Without the partnership of OSFM and fire departments across the state, we would not have been able to put this program together,” said Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Executive Director Philip Zaleski. “We felt that there was a need for the Be Alarmed! program to better protect our residents here in the state of Illinois, and it starts with smoke alarms.”

“Be Alarmed!” is a fire safety educational program developed to educate Illinoisans and to ensure that properly installed and working smoke alarms are in homes across Illinois.
