Mission Statement
The primary mission of the Tinley Park Fire Department is the protection of life, property and the environment by the delivery of effective and efficient fire protection and prevention.

Change your clock, change your batteries
The Tinley Park Fire Department would like to remind residents to change the batteries in their smoke alarms at the same time they set their clocks ahead one hour for Daylight Saving Time on March 13. The fire department also urges residents to check that they have enough smoke alarms in their home. As smoke alarms last 10 years, it also may be time to replace them

'Run for Your Life Safety' 5K Run/Walk
The Tinley Park Fire Department and the nationally accredited Tinley Park Fire Prevention Bureau will host the fourth annual “Run for Your Life Safety” 5K Run/Walk at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, May 1 in the north parking lot at the 80th Avenue Metra train station, 18001 S. 80th Ave., Tinley Park. 
Proceeds from the event benefit the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance’s Camp I Am Me, a burn camp for children ages 8 to 16 who are burn survivors. In its first three years, the event raised more than $38,000 for the camp through sponsorships and participation.

Outdoor Burning
The Tinley Park Fire Prevention Bureau does not recommend open burning in any form. However, if you make the decision to do so, the “Outdoor Burning Regulations in Tinley Park” pamphlet will help you to be fire safe, understand Tinley Park’s law concerning open burning, and explain the proper use of outdoor fire pits, chimineas, portable fireplaces and similar devices.

Change your batteries

The Tinley Park Fire Department recommends that you regularly check and change the batteries in your smoke alarms.

Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Smoke alarms save lives!
