The Be Alarmed! Smoke Alarm Installation Program, administered cooperatively by the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance (IFSA) and the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal (OSFM) has two new corporate partners to help support the distribution of fire safety education materials and 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms to fire departments in Illinois. Beginning in April 2022, Lowe’s home improvement store and Aurora, Illinois-based First Alert became the major corporate groups to help expand the program to more fire departments in the state.
The Illinois Fire Safety Alliance (IFSA) relies heavily on donations, fundraising, and support from the business community through sponsorships to carry out the organization’s mission. The IFSA’s dedication to fire safety, burn prevention, and supporting burn survivors in the state of Illinois has not wavered over the past three-plus decades.
