Test, Inspect, and Replace Broken or Expired Smoke/CO Alarms

To coincide with Daylight Saving Time, the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal reminds you to test, inspect, and replace broken or expired smoke/CO alarms in your home. An Illinois law that took effect in January requires ten-year sealed smoke alarms be installed in homes built before 1988 that do not have hardwired smoke detectors. Read more.

Update Your Smart911 Profile

The Village uses Smart911's system to distribute alerts to residents in emergencies, but can only send messages to users with active accounts. Smart911 requires that you keep your profile updated, and reminds you with an email every six months to verify that your emergency information remains correct. Per their FAQs:
"It is critical that emergency responders have the most current information in order to provide the fastest and most accurate response at your time of emergency. In some cases, having outdated information can send responders to an incorrect location or with incorrect details on the person in need."
