Fire Prevention Month 2023

pan on fire with the words October is fire prevention month

October is Fire Prevention Month. This is a time to focus on the safety measures we can take to prevent fires from occurring in our homes and communities. It’s a time to educate ourselves on the potential hazards of fire and to take the necessary steps to help ensure that our homes and communities are safe from the devastating effects of fire. Each week, we will highlight a different fire safety message on the Fireline Blog and on social media.
