T’was The Night Before Christmas With A Fire Safety Twist
T’was the Night Before Christmas
And all the through the house,
Everyone was sleeping, even the mouse.
When all of a sudden, there appeared some light smoke, then the smoke alarm sounded and everyone woke. Off in the distance a fire began to grow, when all of a sudden it began to slow. Then what to my wondering eyes did appear? A group of firefighters, in full turnout gear! And I heard one exclaim to the others with a shout. “THIS HOME HAS SPRINKLERS! THE FIRE IS OUT!” As they drove away, they were all full of cheer, that the sprinklers work every day of the year.
One of my fire inspector shared this little poem at work. I hope you get a kick out of it like we did!
A Little History Of Fire Prevention Week
President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week on October 4-10, 1925, beginning a tradition of the President of the United States signing a proclamation recognizing the occasion. It is observed on the Sunday through Saturday period in which October 9 falls, in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began October 8,1871, and did most of its damage October 9.
