Mexico Fire Prevention_edit

Members of the Morelia Municipal Fire Brigade are making Fire Prevention Week presentations to children across the city of Morelia, the capital of Michoacán state in central Mexico. Morelia Firefighter David Laguna talked to children from a local education center during an open house at the fire station. For many years fire safety educators in Morelia and other parts of Mexico have made fire safety presentations using NFPA’s Mis Primeros Pasos®, the NFPA Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program in Spanish, and other educational materials available in Spanish. To the delight of the children, Sparky the Fire Dog® often makes appearances.

A few weeks ago, NFPA's Dr. John Hall challenged readers of this blog to name songs that have "Fire", "Flame", or "Smoke" in their titles. Thanks to all of you who took the challenge - you came up with some good ones!

  • "Firehouse" - Kiss
  • "Fire" - Ohio Players
  • "Fire on High"- ELO
  • "Lake of Fire" - Nirvana
  • ""Fire it up" - Busta Rymes

As promised, here's Dr. Hall's list of the 100 or so highest-charting popular songs with "Fire", "Flame" or "Smoke" in the title, going back to the late 19th century.

Enjoy this look back on this Johnny Cash classic from 1963, "Ring of Fire".
