Fire Prevention week (FPW) is observed annually on the Sunday through Saturday period in which October 9th falls.
In Canada, Fire Prevention Week is proclaimed annually by the Governor General. The theme for Fire Prevention Week is chosen by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and announced in early June.
FPW was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration 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.
BFES hosts events throughout the week. Event details are posted each year to on this
webpage, the City’s
