The mayor of Westminster, Colorado, has declared October Fire Prevention Month in the city. Mayor Herb Atchison’s signed proclamation was presented at a recent city council meeting. Westminster Fire Department Public Education Officer Sherrie Leeka is pictured above holding the proclamation, flanked by City Councilor Emma Pinter and Westminster Fire Department Deputy Chief Derik Minard.

In a ceremony in the state capitol in Topeka, Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback signed a proclamation last week recognizing Fire Prevention Week in the state. He was surrounded by city and fire officials, as well as other leaders in the community.

Governor BrownEn outre, Oregon Governor Kate Brown (right), in support of Fire Prevention Week, has proclaimed October as Oregon Fire Prevention Month. During October, the Oregon Office of the State Fire Marshal, the American Red Cross, Bi-Mart, the Oregon Food Bank, and fire agencies statewide are teaming up to raise awareness of the importance of having working smoke alarms in the areas where you sleep.

NFPA’s media materials for Fire Prevention Week include sample gubernatorial and mayoral proclamations. These can be used to spotlight the fire safety work of first responders in your city, state, or province, and help reinforce the lifesaving messages associated with this year’s theme: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.” A proclamation-signing ceremony can be a great photo opportunity for the media, and valuable exposure for a fire department.

For those planning to purchase FPW materials, now is a great time to do so with Fire Prevention Week only a few days away.
