FIRE FACTS - Protect Your Family From Fire

  
FPW2011Banner FIRE FACTS


Fire Prevention Week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire, October 8-9, 1871--the two-day blaze that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 more homeless, and destroyed more than 17,000 buildings.  That tragedy inspired reform across America, spurring new fire safety codes and public awareness campaigns. 

This year's theme focuses on how to protect your family from fire by planning ahead and integrating simple behaviors into your everyday life.  By equipping your home with fire prevention and protection systems and paying attention to potential fire hazards in your home, you can make a difference that will last a lifetime and reduce fire injuries, deaths, and property loss.
