|Subject:||October as Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month and October 9-15, 2016, as 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 9-15, 2016, as "National Fire Prevention Week."
Each year since 1922, Fire Prevention Week is observed across the nation to remind people of fire dangers in their homes and communities, as well as to educate the public about simple fire prevention steps 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.
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of a three-year effort to educate the public about basic but essential elements of smoke alarm safety. Only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. As a result, this year’s efforts focus on the following key messages:
