CARLISLE, OH --  Back in 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week as a national observance. Each year during the week of October 9th, Fire Prevention Week is observed to help commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871.  According to history records, close to 300 lives were lost, over 100,000 residents became homeless and over 17,000 structures were destroyed.

This year during Fire Prevention Week students in Mrs. Centers' kindergarten class at Carlisle Elementary were provided with the opportunity to meet the Carlisle Fire Fighters and learn about fire safety. 

"The boys and girls asked great questions, and they learned a lot about fire safety from the amazing team of fire fighters," said Centers. "We are always greatly for wonderful experiences, such as this."
