Auburn Residents: Auburn Fire and Rescue wants to install a FREE smoke alarm in your home!
“Be Alarmed!” is a fire safety education and smoke alarm installation program administered cooperatively between the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance (IFSA) and the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal (OSFM). Auburn Fire and Rescue will deliver educational material and install smoke alarms in homes within Auburn while recording data for reporting purposes. Both the educational materials and smoke alarms are provided at no cost as a result of funding from both the IFSA and OSFM with additional assistance from Kidde and Menards.
Purpose & Objectives:
The program was developed to educate Illinois residents on the dangers of fire in the home and how to prevent fires from occurring in the home, as well as to ensure there are working smoke alarms properly installed in homes. By providing 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms, it ensures that the power source cannot be removed from the unit and, if properly maintained, will last the life of the device.
The program seeks to:
1. Educate Illinois residents, young and old, on home fire safety and prevention methods
2. Reduce the number of fire-related injuries in Illinois
3. Reduce the number of fire-related deaths in Illinois
4. Identify the reason for non-working smoke alarms in Illinois homes.
We are not allowed to install these smoke alarms for apartment complex tenants that is the responsibility of the business owner (landlord).
