It’s Fire Prevention Week! Tell us what you doing in your community to promote National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)’s campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!”

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will keep you and your family safe. When an alarm makes noises – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – you must take action.

On this day in 2007 nine Charleston firefighters died in the Sofa Super Store fire. This was the deadliest firefighter disaster in the US since the 9/11 attacks. The fire was believed to have started in some discarded furniture in the loading dock area, and though the source of ignition has been left undetermined, there is reason to believe it may have been a discarded cigarette.

The first arriving engine company found a rapidly growing fire at the loading dock which connected the showroom to the warehouse. The Assistant Chief entered the main showroom entrance but did not find any signs of fire or smoke. However, within minutes the fire rapidly spread into main showroom and the warehouse. The burning furniture quickly generated a huge amount of toxic and highly flammable gasses. The interior crews became disoriented when thick black smoke filled the showrooms from ceiling to floor. They realized they were in trouble and began to radio for assistance as the heat intensified.

One fire fighter activated the emergency button on his radio. The front showroom windows were knocked out and firefighters were sent inside to search for the missing firefighters. Soon after, the flammable mixture of combustion by-products ignited, and fire raced through the main showroom. Interior fire fighters were caught in the rapid-fire progression and nine fire fighters died. At least nine other fire fighters barely escaped serious injury.

In the years that followed significant tactical, operational, and code changes were implemented in the Charleston Fire Department and throughout the country. In honoring these men, we learn from our tragedies.

On this day in 1947, a ship called the “Grandcamp” was docked at Texas City, on the Gulf Coast of Texas. It was being loaded with thousands of tons of fertilizer grade ammonium nitrate (FGAN) to be delivered to farms in Europe postwar. As workers were loading the paper bags of ammonium nitrate, they felt warm to the touch. By the time 2,300 tons had been loaded, a plume of smoke drifted from the cargo hold. No one is certain what started the fire.

Soon the sea water near the hull began to boil and waves vaporized upon contact with the ship. Suddenly the “Grandcamp” exploded. The ship’s steel hull and components of the cargo were instantly turned to shrapnel. The explosion sent a 15-foot wave over nearby piers and onto shore killing dockworkers and sending a oil barge onto land. The ship’s anchor was flung 2 miles. The blast also destroyed over 1,000 buildings in the area causing a conflagration. Additionally, two small planes flying nearby were caught in the shockwave and crashed. In all, over 600 people were killed, including 27 firefighters. It took days to completely extinguish all the fires.

New precautions and better labeling for FGAN were implemented in the wake of the disaster, as well as reforming the port of Texas City to handle petroleum exclusively. It also led to the first ever class-action lawsuit against the United States.
