Fire Prevention Week 2017

Fire Prevention Week 2017

Since 1922, National Fire Prevention Week has helped educate the nation on the importance of fire prevention and safety. Fire Prevention Week was established to pay tribute to The Great Chicago Fire, which occurred on October 8-9, 1871. This quick spreading fire killed 250 people, destroyed more than 17,000 buildings and left thousands homeless. Fire prevention week was created to ensure people remember not only this fire, but to understand the devastating effects fire can have on lives. Each year on the week containing October 9th, fire stations, schools and government agencies help people remember the importance of fire safety and prevention. 

The 2017 theme “Every Second Counts - Know Two Ways Out” focuses on the importance of having a fire escape plan. In the event of a fire, seconds count and being prepared will help save lives. Every household needs a Safe Escape Plan and needs to practice home fire drills so they can get out quickly during a fire.
