Fire Prevention Week History
Some history of Fire Prevention Week here. One way or another, it started with the Great Chicago Fire of October 9, 1871. The legend is that Mrs. Catherine O'Leary's cow kicked over a kerosene lantern and started the blaze -- but Mrs. O'Leary was haunted by suspicion of arson for the rest of her life.
A Request to Hams in the Fire Business
For next year: We are looking for other hams who are also firefighters or who work in the fire prevention industry to run additional stations N0F, N6F, etc. in 2016. Ideally, we'd like to cover all ten regions and organize a "clean sweep" type event with a certificate. Please send a message to the email address listed above if you would like to run an NFPW station next year.
