October is Fire Prevention Month and Fire Prevention Week is October 7 – 13, 2018. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is educators’ go-to source for Fire Prevention Week 2018 resources. This is a great time to add some fire safety learning to your lesson plans for your classroom or homeschool.
