National Fire Prevention Week is observed in the United States, during the week in which October 9 falls. In the United States, the first Presidential proclamation of Fire Prevention Week was made in 1925 by President Calvin Coolidge.
The Fire Prevention Week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire. The non-profit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), which has officially sponsored Fire Prevention Week since its inception, selects the annual theme for Fire Prevention Week.
The Princeton Fire Department and Fire Marshal's Office present programs at all schools and day care facilities.
Fire Prevention Programs
Fire prevention is not just for kids, we offer fire prevention programs for senior centers, scout troops, or any other community organization.
Fire prevention programs may be scheduled by submitting a request to the Fire Marshal's Office at least two weeks in advance. For more information you may contact the Fire Marshal's Office by emailing the Fire Marshal.
