Fire Prevention Week (October 4-10, 2015)
The Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sponsor a fire prevention week campaign to highlight the importance of fire safety education. This year’s campaign theme is “Hear the beep where you sleep. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm.”
