9     Sec. 10. License requirement; injunction. No person shall
10 act as a fire equipment distributor or employee, or advertise

12 such person is engaged in such practice or occupation unless
13 licensed by the State Fire Marshal.
14     No firm, association, or corporation shall act as an agency
15 licensed under this Act, or advertise or assume to act as such,

19     The State Fire Marshal, in the name of the People and
20 through the Attorney General, the State's Attorney of any
21 county, any resident of the State, or any legal entity within
22 the State may apply for injunctive relief in any court to
23 enjoin any person who has not been issued a license or whose
24 license has been suspended, revoked, or not renewed from
25 practicing a licensed activity, and upon the filing of a
26 verified petition, the court, if satisfied by affidavit or
27 otherwise, that such person is or has been practicing in
28 violation of this Act may enter a temporary restraining order
29 or preliminary injunction, without bond, enjoining the
30 defendant from such further activity. A copy of the verified

12 return, or to pay any final assessment of tax, penalty, or
13 interest, as required by any tax Act administered by the
14 Illinois Department of Revenue, until such time as the
