Bullock, a black physician who saw both black and white patients during the 1920s and ‘30s.  Dr. Bullock is listed as one of Chickasha’s Pioneers (1894-1904) and was presi- dent of the local chapter of the NAACP and a member of the Negro Chamber of October is Fire Prevention Month!  The goal of Fire Prevention Month is to raise fire safety awareness, and help ensure your home and family is protected. In 1922, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) named the second week of October Fire Prevention Week in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. Today, we celebrate Fire Pre- vention Week and Month by raising fire safety awareness and educating families, students and communities across the United States. During this month, fire depart- ments provide education to their communities, and encourage parents and loved ones to practice fire prevention and whole home safety.  The NFPA’s 2021 campaign for Fire Safety Month is “Learn The Sounds of Fire Safety. Help protect and keep your home safe today by installing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, as well as having fire extinguishers at home.  Fire Prevention month is the perfect time to educate and talk with your whole family about fire safety – include testing alarms, changing the batteries or upgrad- ing to 10-year sealed battery alarms, how to use a fire extinguisher and escape route planning.  • 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no working smoke alarms  • Less than 50% of homeowners have an escape plan  • Carbon monoxide (CO) is the #1 cause of accidental poisoning in the US The Bullock Center was named in honor of Dr. W.A.J.
