Inaugural Safety 5K
On May 5, 2013 the Nationally Accredited Tinley Park Fire Prevention Bureau and Fire Department hosted their inaugural ‘Run for Your LIFE SAFETY’ 5K Walk/Run to help raise money for the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance ‘Camp I Am Me’. With increased fire safety awareness as its primary goal, the 5K Walk/Run exceeded everyone’s expectations in attendance and sponsorship.

On Wednesday, June 19 members of the Fire Prevention Bureau presented checks for over $13,000 to ‘Camp I Am Me’, formerly known as ‘Burn Camp’. The mission of Camp “I Am Me” is to provide a safe environment for children who have experienced significant burn injuries. There is no cost to the children’s families; the IFSA even provides transportation to and from camp. This is made possible solely through the generous donations received for the camp and its prevention programs. Visit for more information.
