Fire Prevention Week was established by President Coolidge in 1925 to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 which claimed 250 lives and more than 17,400 structures. During this week, the staff and volunteers of McKenzie Fire & Rescue visit local schools and preschools to share fire prevention and safety messages with nearly 400 local kids.
