October is Fire Prevention Month.  The history of National Fire Prevention Week has it roots in the Great Chicago Fire, which occurred on October 9, 1871. Every family should know the basics of how to prevent fires at home and what to do in case there is a fire. So, invest a few minutes and learn how to BE SAFE! There are many things that people can do to improve their safety at home, school, or work from a FIRE!  

"This last week, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sponsored National Fire Prevention Week, with a great message: ‘Home Cooking Fires: Watch What You Heat!’. One out of three home fires start in the kitchen, and leaving cooking unattended and other unsafe kitchen practices are recipes for disaster.”

It took ventriloquist, singer, comedian and celebrity impressionist Terry Fator to become an overnight sensation when he won the hearts of America and was selected “America’s Got Talent” 2007 $1 million dollar prize winner on NBC-TV.

The Mirage Hotel recently held a press conference to announce that Fator signed a five-year $100 hundred million dollar deal beginning February 2009, with an option for an additional five years at $110 million dollars.  He will perform 48 weeks a year, 5 nights a week in The Terry Fator Theatre (currently the Danny Gans Theatre).

Terry will share his exciting life with the VCO readers.
