If you DO NOT have a working smoke alarm and are not able to afford one, the Fire Department will personally install one free of charge. For more information and to register to be a recipient or donor, please call 708.331.7720 and ask about “PROJECT INSTALL”. It could save a life!

Remembering When

The Harvey Fire Department has partnered with Catholic Charities and the National Fire Protection Agency to be a part of “Remembering When”, a community outreach program aimed at educating our senior citizens about fire safety and fall prevention.
