Fire Prevention Tips

Fire Prevention "Tips of the Day"

Fire Prevention Week was established in remembrance of the Great Chicago Fire. The fire occurred in 1871 and killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. Because the fire did most of its damage on October 9th, Fire Prevention Week always occurs in the week of October 9th.
