October is Fire Prevention Month

Although UL encourages everyone to practice fire safety throughout the year, during for the month of October we want to provide a special focus on fire safety. This year fire prevention week is October 3-9 and the 2021 fire prevention theme established by NFPA is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!”TM so we wanted to be sure that everyone has some information that can help keep them fire safe throughout the month of October and beyond. Visit our Fire Prevention Month page for more information about how you can be more fire safe.
We salute code authorities, who contribute to the safety of the built environment every day in concert with design professionals, builder’s installers and manufacturers. Visit our helpful pages using the links below to learn more.
