SERVPRO Supports Fire Prevention Week
The theme for Fire Prevention Week this year is "Not Every Hero Wears a Cape". Fire prevention week started because of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The fire lasted two days and affected a 3-mile radius, displacing thousands. Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey Bear have become a large part of Fire Prevention Week, teaching children that no matter how small something or someone is they can always help prevent a fire. For example, a child can remind the adults to blow out candles before leaving the home or going to bed.
We typically see an increase in fire pit accidents with the arrival of the Fall season. While Smore's are tasty and fun, it is best to make them over the stove or gas grill if it is too windy out.
