Fire Prevention Week is October 9-15

Fire Prevention Week is less than a month away. Make sure your Fire Corps team takes advantage of this opportunity to spread important fire prevention and safety messages and information in your community.

The theme for this year’s event, held from October 9-15, is: “It’s Fire Prevention Week! Protect Your Family From Fire!” Use this time to motivate your community to take an active role in preventing home fires and protecting their families with life-saving tools and planning.

Prevention is the most effective way to ensure you and your community’s families are protected from fire. You can use the tips and resources from the Fire Corps web site to distribute in your community as part of your Fire Prevention Week campaign.
