The earliest known fire lookout in the world was on Mount Masada, west of the Dead Sea, in present-day Israel, approx. 2,000 years ago. It was built by the evil King Herod's army in the Holy Land to protect against his enemies who were burning his empire.

Fire Prevention Day was begun by the Fire Marshals Association of North America, now part of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The day was first proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson on October 9, 1911, the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. It has since been renamed Fire Prevention Week and extended to cover the entire week that includes the October 9 anniversary date.
