  • Fire Prevention Week
    Since 1922, the National Fire Protection Association has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country. During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving public education in an effort to drastically decrease casualties caused by fires.
    Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.

    2018 Fire Prevention Week Campaign
    This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one:

    LOOK
    Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

    LISTEN
    Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

    LEARN
    Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

    Members of the Timpson Volunteer Fire Department joined our students on Monday for breakfast. Then the firemen showed students around the firetruck and described some of the tools that are utilized while fighting fires. Later, members of the Forest Service joined the group, along with surprise guest, SMOKEY THE BEAR!!

    Thanks to the Timpson Volunteer Fire Department, the Forest Service and our special friend Smokey for the visit!
