Fire prevention month is from October 4th – October 10th. The goal of fire prevention month is to raise fire safety awareness. According to the U.S. Fire administration an estimated 4,000 school fires are reported each year. An active Fire marshal Shania Ferguson says “They let you understand the concept of a real fire evacuation”. Performing fire drills regularly through out the school year will decrease casualties in the event of an actual fire.
