[ARCHIVED] Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14

Covid-19 and the Malignant Omicron Variant

Queen Anne’s County Commissioners presented a proclamation to Bill Faust and Dawn Starkey from the Queen Anne’s County Fire and EMS Commission, declaring October 8-14, Fire Prevention Week in Queen Anne’s County. You can read the Proclamation here 

In 1922, the National Fire Protection Association founded the National Fire Prevention Week to take place the week of October 9th, commemorating the date of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. This year’s theme for Fire Protection Week is kitchen fire hazards. Cooking remains the leading cause of fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Queen Anne’s County Volunteer Fire Departments reminds all residents “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention”

The Queen Anne’s County Commissioners urge all the people of Queen Anne’s County to check their kitchens for fire hazards and use safe cooking practices, and to support the many public safety activities and efforts of Queen Anne’s County’s volunteer fire and emergency services.

The Queen Anne’s County Fire & EMS Commission coordinates the activities of the volunteer fire and ambulance departments in relation to their delivery of service in Queen Anne’s County. To learn more, visit or follow them on Facebook at @QACFEC
