Submitting FOIA Requests to the OSFM
FOIA requests to the OSFM must be made in writing. Requests shall be legible, specific and in English. The requests must be completed using this online web form.
You may submit the form directly to our FOIA Division by clicking on the "Submit Request" link in the form OR you can fill the form out, print it and then mail or fax to our office. DO NOT DO BOTH as this will result in duplicate requests being sent to our office.
If you decide to mail your request to our office you may complete the form legibly, and in English, print the form out (WITHOUT submitting the form) and mail or fax it to the Illinois State Fire Marshal. Our mailing address is:
Illinois State Fire Marshal

If your request falls within the Property Fire Loss Act [215 ILCS 145/1], DO NOT complete the form above. The OSFM Electronic Property Fire Loss Act Submission Form must be completed instead. You may still submit the form via the above-mentioned methods, however. If you wish to fax a Property Fire Loss Act request, you must use this fax number instead: (217) 785-4715.
