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 2020; Mario Araujo, Edward Singleton, Robert Reisinger and Dylan Cunningham. 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 OSFM, Illinois Fire Service Institute and MABAS-Illinois are launching the State of Illinois Preliminary Exposure Reduction Project. This joint venture was developed to deliver critical firefighter health and life safety research, education, training and basic equipment to fire departments across the state. The intent of the project is to provide departments with free basic equipment that can be used for preliminary exposure reduction (gross decontamination or decon) of personnel on incident response scenes, as well as training on how to use those tools.
All the information about this program, how to sign-up and complete training can be found by clicking this post.
