The National Fire Protection Association annually honors Fire Prevention Week near Oct. 9, which is the anniversary of the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. The fire killed about 300 people and left more than 100,000 residents homeless, so Fire Marshal Association started the commemorative week to prevent future fires.
