New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, at the request of State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan, has declared October 5-11 Fire Prevention Week. Governor Hassan will be signing the proclamation on Monday, October 6th at 3:00 p.m. at the State House.

Fire Marshal Degnan, Chief David Parenti, President of the Association of New Hampshire Fire Chiefs, and The New Hampshire Fire Prevention Society are all joining forces with NFPA during FPW to remind local residents about the importance of having working smoke alarms in the home and testing them monthly.

Template governor and mayor proclamations are available on the Fire Service section of the FPW page of the NFPA website. Other media materials on the site include sample news releases, social media messages, and letters to the editor.
