BE ALARMED

SMOKE DETECTOR INSTALLATIONS

Working smoke detectors save lives! 

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District is participating in a joint effort with the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance and the Office of the State Fire Marshal, “Be Alarmed”.  As part of the program, the IFSA has shipped smoke detectors to WFRD to be installed in resident’s homes to help reduce the number of fire-related deaths.  Smoke detectors will be installed by our personnel while on duty, free of charge.  Smoke detectors will come with a permanent 10-year sealed battery and would require only routine testing.  Installation is limited by the program to residential spaces owned by the individual.  Tenants with non-functional smoke detectors should contact their landlord for a replacement and are encouraged to reach out to WFRD should they need assistance.

Residents can request a set of smoke alarms by completing the brief form below. When requested, WFRD personnel will arrange to visit the resident’s home and will install smoke detectors in every sleeping area, outside of the sleeping area, and on each level of the home, including the basement.
