Fire Awareness Month


Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.

During the month of October, the Burtonsville Volunteer Fire Department will present interactive videos, scavengers hunt, give-aways, and other information for our community.

Thank you to all who attended our annual Open House event on October 1, 2022!
