Fire Prevention Week is an annual event that aims to raise awareness about fire safety and promote measures to prevent fires. This year, Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14. The campaign is observed in remembrance of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused widespread destruction.
Fire Prevention Week is an opportunity for fire departments, schools, and communities to educate the public about the importance of fire safety. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has selected Cooking Safety as the theme for 2023.
