Smoke Detector Program Information

Did you know that Smoke Detectors expire just like Carbon Monoxide detectors do? Every 10 years, smoke detectors will lose their effectiveness and are recommended to be replaced to ensure that your detectors will still operate as designed in the event of a fire.
As part of our Fire Prevention program, the Peoria Heights Fire Department has battery powered smoke detectors available for Peoria Heights residents to make sure that you are adequately protected. We can install these (or another battery powered smoke detector you purchase if you’d rather buy your own) in your residence for you as well to make sure they are located where they will best protect you.
For information on this program, please reach out to Lieutenant Dalton Carlson at 309-686-2377 or by e-mail at
