It’s National Fire Prevention Week! Let’s take some time to learn the facts and check out some prevention and safety tips in honor of this week.

You’re Invited!

Who: Everyone is encouraged to participate in Fire Prevention Week!

What: This week is a chance for the fire service to reach out to communities, encourage citizens to prepare for and prevent fires, and explain how to do so. The theme this year is… ‘Have Two Ways Out!’

When: October 7-13

Why: Fire Prevention Week was established in 1871, in order to commemorate those who died in the Great Chicago Fire. Those who survived were marked by their experience—both by the trauma they endured, and by the bravery and heroism that was shown.

How: Learn the facts, make changes, help advocate!

Some facts:

  • Every 85 seconds, there is a house fire reported (2010)
  • Functioning smoke detectors reduce the risk of dying in a
    house fire by 50%
  • According to an NFPA survey, only 1/3 of Americans have
    established and practiced a fire escape plan for their home

 What Can You Do?

  • Establish and practice a fire escape plan for your home
  • Install and maintain smoke detectors
  • Install a carbon monoxide alarm, and replace it every 5-7
    years
