October is Fire Prevention Month as we remember the Chicago Fire of 1871, also called the Great Chicago Fire, which burned from October 8 to October 10, 1871, and destroyed thousands of buildings, killed an estimated 300 people and caused an estimated $200 million in damages.
The NFPA’s theme this year is: Every Second Counts – Have 2 Ways Out!
