Modoc Fire Prevention & Education Committee Celebrates National Fire Prevention Week

October 8th-14th, 2023 marked the 101st year of the National Fire Protection Association’s Fire Prevention Week. The NFPA has sponsored this public observance that commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 since 1922, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country. During this year’s Fire Prevention Week the Modoc Fire Prevention & Education Committee traveled to schools in Modoc County to teach children how to stay safe in case of a fire and open the annual fire prevention poster contest. Lessons included proper 9-1-1 procedures, fire safety & exit drills in the home, campfire safety, defensible space, and burn prevention. Students were also delighted by visits from the fire prevention mascots, Smokey Bear, the BLMs Seymour Antelope, and Cal Fire’s Captain Cal. Click here to see posters from this year’s contest.
