Fire Prevention Week
Fire Prevention Week is a national event held every October to
commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The event began in 1957 and
features a different fire safety theme each year. The devastating fire
in Chicago left 100,000 people homeless and destroyed over 2,000 acres.
This tragedy serves as a constant reminder of how a seemingly small fire
can quickly get out of control.
