Fire Prevention Week proclaimed in Nevada

title

By Lisa Braxton

Governor Brian Sandoval has proclaimed October 4-10 Fire Prevention Week (FPW) in the state of Nevada. The governor is doing his part to help boost awareness about the fire safety campaign and make the public aware of the importance of having working smoke alarms. Governor Sandoval is one of many officials across the United States and Canada signing proclamations for FPW.

NFPA’s media materials include sample gubernatorial and mayoral proclamations that 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. A proclamation-signing ceremony can be a great photo opportunity for the media, and valuable exposure for a fire department.
