Fire Prevention Week

2018 Fire Prevention Week Theme 


The 2018 Fire Prevention Week theme is:

Look. Listen. Learn.
Be aware.
Fire can happen anywhere.

Fire Prevention Week 2018 is Oct. 7-13, and firefighters across the country are encouraging us to be aware of any fire hazards in the home. Most fires are preventable, so take the time to learn more about how you can protect your home and community from fire.

The National Fire Protection Association annually honors Fire Prevention Week near Oct. 9, which is the anniversary of the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. The fire killed about 300 people and left more than 100,000 residents homeless, so Fire Marshal Association started the commemorative week to prevent future fires.
