Reviewing fire safety tips during month of October

October 6, 2011

October has been named as Fire Safety Month, and members of the local fire department stress the importance of staying safe.
“Every month should be Fire Safety Month,” Wapakoneta Firefighter Doug Kill said.
Fire Safety Month is celebrated every October and this is because October is the month when the Great Chicago Fire occurred in 1871. This fire was one of the largest U.S. disasters of the 19th century.
This week is being celebrated Fire Safety Week, and members of the Wapakoneta Fire Department said this is a good time to review fire safety at home.
