|Subject:||Resolution designating October as “Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month” and observing “National Fire Prevention Week”|
|In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating October as “Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month” and observing the week of October 6 through 12, 2013, as “National Fire Prevention Week.”
Each year since 1922, Fire Prevention Week is observed across the nation to remind people of fire dangers in homes and in their communities and to educate the public about simple fire prevention steps they can take to make everyone safer. It is also an opportunity to recognize the efforts of all firefighters, fire service agencies, and other first responders in preventing and combating fire dangers.
The theme for National Fire Prevention Week 2013 is "Prevent Kitchen Fires.” More fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home. That is why it is important to learn how to prevent cooking fires. National Fire Prevention Week and Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month will help reinforce these lessons.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this resolution.
