It’s Fire Prevention Week, and the theme this year is “LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.” Share this video on these three essential steps for fire prevention and safety.

 

Hunting season is a foot and with it is an active mating season.

This means Deer are on the move and looking to make their move no matter the cost.

So please keep your eyes constantly surveying the road in front of you and your wits about you.

Don’t Veer for Deer!

 

For Our brothers and Sisters we honor you.

A Proclamation by the President of the United States.

During Fire Prevention Week, we renew our commitment to preparedness, fire safety awareness, and individual responsibility. We also honor our brave firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty and their families, as well as those firefighters who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to safeguard our lives and property.

Our Nation’s firefighters are heroes, and they deserve our deepest respect and gratitude for the selfless service they provide to our communities.

Each year, an average of 1.4 million fires burn in the United States, resulting in thousands of deaths and injuries along with billions of dollars in direct property damage. This year, in the Western and Midwestern parts of the country, wildfires of unprecedented scale and scope have threatened local wildlife and the environment and have severely impacted local and regional economies through their devastating effect on agriculture and tourism industries. In many areas, I have declared the wildfires a major disaster and ordered Federal assistance to supplement State and local recovery efforts. My Administration remains committed to providing help to those affected.

As we mark Fire Prevention Week, all Americans must be vigilant and take precautionary measures to reduce the risk of fire and to protect their families and property. It is critical to look for places in the home where fires can start, identify potential hazards, and take the steps needed to prevent these devastating fires. It is also important to regularly check and maintain smoke alarms, as these devices can provide life-saving warnings if there is a fire in the home. If a smoke alarm rings, it is essential to respond quickly, as you may have only minutes to escape safely.

Listen to the sound of all of the firefighters who died that day. The “chirping sound” is a built in safety in our gear to indicate a firefighter who is not moving and may have not reported in. For every chirp is a firefighter down.
