Jack Janozik named IFIA president


Tinley Park’s Public Education Officer Jack Janozik recently was sworn in as the president of the Illinois Fire Inspectors Association (IFIA). His board includes Vice President Bill Schmidt (Streamwood), Secretary Jamie Brown (New Lenox) and Treasurer Jay Atherton (Palatine). The IFIA’s immediate past president was Tinley Park Deputy Fire Chief Dan Riordan.

The IFIA is a leader in fire prevention activities throughout Illinois and is recognized by several national organizations. It is comprised of local fire departments, businesses and individuals from throughout the state with the common interest of saving lives and property. The IFIA strives to accomplish this by being active in code enforcement, fire and life safety education, fire investigation and legislation.

The IFIA's mission is to reduce death and injuries from fire and other dangers through education, enforcement and engineering. IFIA committees are active in organizing educational opportunities, conferences, code enforcement classes and social events.


Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery

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!

Fire Apparatus Purchase

The Tinley Park Village Board recently approved the purchase of two new fire apparatus that will serve the community. View the Fire Apparatus Purchase Approval memo for more information.
