[ARCHIVED] Fire Prevention Week October 3-9, 2021

Fire Prevention Week

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. This year the theme is: Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety; placing a focus on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, their necessity, and how the sounds they make help save lives. The Lafayette Fire Department plans to make the following activities available to the community and can be scheduled by following the links below the activities.
