Normally, the Office of the State Fire Marshal's Division of Public Education offers free smoke alarms to Illinois Fire Departments for installation in homes of those in need. Any Illinois Fire Department can request smoke alarms from the office. A total of six (6) alarms will be sent at a time to requesting departments.
However, due to the State’s current budget situation, the OSFM is not able to provide free smoke alarms. Once a budget is in place, smoke alarms will be ordered and your requests will be filled. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
