MARIETTA - On Thursday, October 10, 2019, City Council and the Marietta Fire Department honored third grade students from local schools who participated in a poster contest as part of the nationwide Fire Prevention Week. 

Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 fire that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871. 

Fire Prevention Week is celebrated the 2nd week of October each year to coincide with the original date of the Great Chicago Fire. Fire Prevention Week is the longest-running public health observance, according to the National Archives and Records Administration’s Library Information Center. Its intent is to keep the public informed on Fire Safety, Education and Prevention.

This year’s theme was “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”
