iFire Prevention iMust Be Personal 3 f.v'; Fire Prevention Week, October 7 to 13, should command greater pfublic interest this year than: ever before. be-fore. Never in history was so much property, destroyed by fire in 365 days, as during the past 12 months. In our own country, which has not been-subjected to the ravages of war, there are 1.000 home fires every day. Once every 50 minutes someone is burned to death a large percentage of them children left in homes which contain unnecessary fire hazards. 800,000,000 matches are used daily, each one capable of starting a fire in a home or factory. Two hundred and fifty billion bil-lion cigarettes are smoked each year each is a fire hazard haz-ard which, can ignite waste paper, bed clothes, material ' placed carelessly on shelves, clothing, and a thousand-and-one other articles. No one can prevent most of such fire losses except - the home owner, the lighter of matches, the smoker, and every individual old enough to think. Annual fire losses in the United States, which could largely be prevented, pre-vented, are greater than those caused by the bombings of London during the first years of "the war. They are not as spectacular as the London losses because they are scattered all over the country. Ten thousand deaths from fire, distributed over 48 states, and tens of thousands of homes and factories destroyed, do not make headlines like the bombing of a ' city, but the permanence of death and fire loss for those involved, is just as real. Fire Prevention Week, from October 7 to 13, is something all should observe not for that week alone but for every day in the year. The Utah Safety Council advises that fire losses in Utah alone last year was approximately $1,200,000 with an accompanying loss of 26 lives.
