Fire Programs

Fire Prevention 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.

During the month of October, St. John Parish Fire Rescue visits the local schools and day cares to teach the fire prevention message. This message is designed for each age group so we can ensure that we are teaching fire safety in the most effective way possible.

If you are interested in having us provide a fire safety talk to your classes or groups please contact us using our contact page,  we would be happy to provide the message.
