Commemorating the Great Chicago Fire
Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871.
We will have two engines on the road this week from October 1-5. We will be be visiting Pre-k, K, and 4th graders in the Georgetown area schools. We teach with a series of hands on demonstrations along with show and tell with the little ones. For the 4th graders, they will watch a DVD of our department in action and learn the basics of fire. Please take the time to practice a fire drill this week with your children. Discuss escape plans and a safe meeting place for your family. Always have two ways out and children never to play with matches and lighters. A prepared house is a safe house.
