It has been a very difficult year for the fire service and EMS communities in Illinois and across the country. We unfortunately lost five heroes in the line of duty in 2021; Michael Pickering, MaShawn Plummer, Garrett Ramos and Mehdi Mourad. The OSFM sends our thoughts and prayers to the families, friends and our brothers and sisters at the fire departments who have lost heroes this year. This page honors their memories and service to their communities and citizen of Illinois. Thank you to all our first responders for all that you do to keep our communities safe.
The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) wants to remind all Illinoisans to practice safe grilling techniques this summer. More and more people entertain outdoors during the summer months, leading to the increase of fires caused by grills. July is the peak month for grilling fires.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), reports over 70% of U.S. households own at least one outdoor BBQ, grill or smoker. Gas grills contribute to a higher number of fires than charcoal grills. NFPA reports 64% of households own a gas grill. On average, 10,200 home fires are started by a grill each year. Each year 19,000 patients visit the Emergency room with injuries caused from grilling. Thermal burns are the most common injury with over 9,000 reported.
