Back in 1922, the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) established Fire Prevention Week in October in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that began on October 8.
A helpful tip – never assume someone else has already called the fire department. Always have your local department phone number handy and/or call 911 in a fire emergency.
