Fire Prevention Week

Don't wait - check the date! Replace smoke alarms every 10 years


Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 9-15, and firefighters across the country are encouraging us to check our smoke alarms.

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. 


Join Castle Rock Fire and Rescue at the below family friendly and fun events.
