Week was made in 1925 by President Calvin Coolidge, as a way to keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention.
National Fire Prevention Week
is observed in the United States and Canada, during the week (from Sunday to Saturday) in which October 9 falls. In the United States, the first presidential proclamation of Fire Prevention
Grand Chute Firefighters spend much of the month of October visiting with area school children to educate them on the importance of fire prevention and safety. Strong partnerships with our local schools
enable us to provide this proactive learning experience to the children of our community at an early age. Examples of fire prevention week activities include station tours, daycare visits, the fire prevention poster contest, and an interactive "Fire Prevention Jeopardy" game which tests the knowledge of older students.
