Fire and Life Safety Day: Fire and Life Safety Day is an annual event coordinated by the Fire Prevention Officers of Marin County. During the 2003 event, held in Corte Madera, an intern from Point Reyes teaches families about campfire safety and firefighter safety. This annual event takes place in October, on the Saturday before Fire Prevention Week. Fire Prevention Week is the week October 8 falls in and commemorates two major fires that occurred on October 8, 1871 – the Great Chicago Fire, and the Peshtigo Fire in which over 1,000 lives were lost.
