Highland Park Fire Department Offers Free Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Highland Park Fire Department has been selected to participate in the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance's (IFSA) Smoke Alarm Distribution program. IFSA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fire safety, burn prevention, and supporting burn survivors in Illinois

 This smoke detector program has been developed to protect Illinois citizens by providing no-cost 10-year, sealed-in battery smoke alarms. This will provide Highland Park Fire Department an opportunity to address areas of community risk due to lack of protection by providing working smoke alarms. The department received 100 smoke detectors and 14 carbon monoxide detectors.

The alarms are free, but must be installed in the home by Highland Park Fire Department. These detectors are to be installed in owner occupied single family homes. Working smoke detectors are the single most important devices used in the early detection of fires.

“We are excited to be able to partner with the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance in providing smoke alarms for our residents. Installing working smoke alarms will go a long way toward preventing burns and fire deaths,” said Fire Chief Dan Pease.

For more information on the program, please contact the City of Highland Park Fire Department at 847.433.3110 or by email at fire@cityhpil.com.
