Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week has been observed in the United States since 1922, which makes it the longest running public health and safety observance on record. The President of the United States has signed a prolamation prounouncing a national observance during the Sunday through Saturday period in which October 9th falls each year since 1925. October 9th was chosen because it was on that day in 1871 that The Great Chicago Fire and the lesser-known Peshtigo Forest Fire did their most damage.

Of course, it doesn't have to be Fire Prevention Week to learn more about fire safety. Fire station information and public education visits are available year-round. Call the station to schedule a visit to your group by Maumelle firefighters. We also invite you to download safety information online from the safety section of our Web site's front page.
