Each year over 2500 people die in fires, most of them in residential occupancies. National Fire Prevention Week is October 6-12 this year and the theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape – Plan and Practice Your Escape!” Fire Service throughout the country will be working to emphasize fire safety awareness as will the New Canaan Fire Department.
Fire Fighters will be visiting schools throughout town giving demonstrations on how to stay fire safe. School groups will be touring the fire house to learn about how the fire fighters live, train and work. In conjunction with National Fire Prevention week, The New Canaan Historical Society will display the History of New Canaan Fire Company from now until October 26.
