Updated Illinois Smoke Alarm Law Effective January 1st, 2023

December, 16, 2022

An updated Illinois smoke alarm law will come into effect this January 1st, 2023. 

In 2017, the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance worked with the General Assembly to pass a law which requires Illinois Residents to replace their old smoke alarms with the type that has a long-term, 10 year sealed batterey. This law applies to residents that are still using alarms with removable batteries or alarms that are not hardwired. Old smoke alarms may be recycled at the designated collectoin box located in the 2nd floor lobby at Village Hall.
