Fire Prevention week. October, every year. Three words that drive some firefighters batty. Fire Prevention Week! Why is that? Frank Brannigan said "no firefighter was ever killed in a fire that was prevented".

Why wouldn't that mantra ring from every fire department and station in the country every week of the year? The first week in October is dedicated to Fire Prevention. School drills, Great escape programs, the whole deal. We have kids come to the station and the whole works, and then - the next week in October and we're back to hoping and wishing for the next fire.

Somebody isn't sincere and I don't think it's the Kids. What do you think? Do we talk a good game?
