"Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871." - National Fire Protection Association
Use fire prevention week to open a dialogue with your students about what it means to be safe at school and at home. Each year there is a new theme and slogan. This year the focus is on smoke alarms - "Hear the beep where you sleep!".
