The White House issues Fire Prevention Week Proclamation

title

Por Lisa Braxton

The President of the United States has proclaimed October 4 through October 10, 2015, as Fire Prevention Week. On Sunday, Octubre 4, the United States flag was flown at half staff at all federal office buildings in honor of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. President Barack Obama is calling on all Americans to participate in Fire Prevention Week with appropriate programs and activities.

President Obama paid tribute Sunday to firefighters who died in the line of duty and cited the sacrifices they made in service to a grateful nation.

Obama spoke at the annual national memorial service in Emmitsburg, Maryland, and said those being remembered were heroes.

Obama said, “It’s hard to think of a more selfless profession.” He added that it’s hard to imagine what it takes to “override the natural human instinct for self-preservation and run into danger as others are running away — to literally walk through fire, knowing you might never make it out.”
