Since 1922, the NFPA has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge
proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country.
During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving
public education in an effort to drastically decrease casualties caused by fires.
Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which
began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000
homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.

Be a hero

How do you define a hero? Is it…a person who is courageous and
performs good deeds? Someone who comes to the aid of others,
even at personal risk?
A hero can be all of those things. A hero can also be…someone
who takes small, but important actions to keep themselves and
those around them safe from fire. When it comes to fire safety,
maybe you’re already a hero in your household or community.
If not, maybe you’re feeling inspired to become one. It’s easy to
take that first step - make your home escape plan!

Importance of fire prevention

In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe
escape and a tragedy. Fire safety education isn’t just for school
children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are also at risk in fires,
making it important for every member of the community to take
some time every October during Fire Prevention Week to make
sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire.
