fire prevention weekOn October 8th, 1871, the Great Chicago Fire took place. Each year, the National Fire Protection Association recognizes the calendar week in which October 8th falls as Fire Prevention Week. Fire Prevention Week is an excellent opportunity to teach and re-teach children about the dangers of fire, along with how to prevent fire and fire-related injuries.

This year, Zion District 6 teamed up with the Zion Fire and Rescue Department to bring our students a virtual experience on fire prevention. Due to COVID-19, the Zion Fire and Rescue Department was not able to conduct in-person truck tours, gear demos, or educational safety talks. However, the District 6 Communications Department worked with everyone in Fire Station 1 to create an educational video for our teachers and families. Educational handouts will also be distributed to each school and will be available to everyone digitally.

Thank you to Fire Chief Lewis and the entire Zion Fire & Rescue team for your continued support!
