Fire Department to be active during Fire Prevention Week Sunday through Oct. 11 marks this year's Fire Prevention Week. The Naval Station Fire Department will conduct some sixty fire pre- vention lectures and fire extin- guisher demonstrations on the NATO base this week. Fire Prevention Week is held dur- ing the week of Oct. 9, the anniver- sary of the "Great Chicago Fire of 1871". That fire killed 250 people and destroyed property totaling $168 million. The disaster inspired real community efforts toward fire pre- vention. To remind people of the need to practice fire safety, the Fire Marshalls Association of North America, now a section of the Nat- ional Fire Protection Association, established the Prevention Day in 1911 on the 40th anniversary of the Chicago fire. It was expanded to a full week observance by President Warren Harding. We can help the Naval Station Fire Department during the week and all year by being a "Partner in Fire Prevention." This means keeping your home and the community as safe as possible from the dangers of fire, and following the recommen- dations of the fire department. Teach your family correct safety behavior. Make sure they practice burn prevention in the kitchen by not wearing long, loose sleeves when cooking or working around the stove. Small appliances and hot pans should be kept out of the reach of little children. If anyone in the family smokes, make sure they use a large sturdy ashtray, and they dispose of smoking materials carefully. Everyone in the family should know escape procedures and the agreed upon meeting place outside the home. Highlighting the Fire Prevention Program this year will be EDITH (exit drills in the home) which will be conducted on Oct. 21 at 5:30 p.m. Fire Chief S.R. Eirlksson, ex- plained that sirens will be sounded and announcements on television and radio will alert personnel that the drill is in progress. EDITH is a good opportunity for all personnel to practice getting out of the house in case of a real fire.
