Fire Prevention Week

October 4-10, 2020

This page is offered by the Division of State Fire Marshal as a resource to fire and life safety educators, teachers and parents that want to teach children and their families more about how to be safe from fire. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) designates one week each year to recognize important fire safety topics.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!™” works to educate everyone about the simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves, and those around them, safe in the kitchen.

"What can you do?"

Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen.
