Celebrating Fire Prevention Week in Boston
If you're a teacher, the National Fire Protection Association did your Fire Prevention Week planning for you. Below, you'll find a week's worth of fun grade-level-aligned, standards-based activities that you can do this week to help your students stay safe in case of a fire. Have a great week!
Fire Prevention Week 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.
