Understanding the importance of fire safety and burn prevention is a message everyone, young and old, should observe.
Each Monday throughout the month of October, this page will focus on fire safety and burn prevention information sponsored by the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance. Thousands of students throughout Illinois will learn more about the dangers, the consequences, the causes and how to prevent a fire from occurring.
Fire deaths and injuries can be prevented if we learn more about fire safety and burn prevention - and practice it.
