 A lot of people may not know ,but not only is OCTOBER PINKTOBER but it is


also NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION MONTH. Each year, the campaign focuses on a different


aspect of safety, from preventing forest fires to planning an escape route during a blaze. While the


campaign lasts the entire month most police and fire departments designate the second week of


October as Fire Prevention Week, during which demonstrations and expos are held in different U.S.


cities.


Sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA),Fire Prevention Month has roots


  that date back to THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE of 1871 that killed more than 250 people and left


more than 100,000 homeless. The fire,which was reportedly started in a barn, also burned more than


2,000 acres and destroyed about 17,400 structures. The three-day fire, which started October 8,did


most of its damage on October 9,1871,which is why Fire Prevention Week is always held around that


 date. The first National Fire Prevention Day was declared by President Woodrow Wilson in


1922,and the week long observance is the longest running public safety and health campaign on record.

Hi Friends!

    As you all know its that time again....to THINK PINK!!  We are all interested in the new stats and information related to Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness. This disease affects all of us in some form or fashion. We all know a friend or loved one who may be a survivor or is currently suffering with Breast Cancer. I personally know too many to count.


Management of people with breast cancer later in life is often challenging due to lack of good quality evidence regarding the roles of adjuvant chemotherapy. Decisions regarding chemotherapy should be made based on  the type of tumor and the age of the tumor rather than the person's chronological age.(http/www.medscape.com/viewarticle/817435)


According to recent data and the opinions of Cancer Specialists the best treatment for Breast Cancer is still early detection and maintaining an overall healthy well-balanced lifestyle. So in this month of PINKTOBER remember to get those yearly check-ups and mammograms!
