Per Fire Marshal Sehlmeyer’s request, I am sharing the following press release with you regarding the partnership between MI Prevention, the National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Association, and Wayne State University’s AmeriCorps Urban Safety Project and their efforts to help protect residents in the Detroit area.
Feel free to share!
Join State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer on Monday, October 1, at 10 am, to kick off Fire Prevention Month as proclaimed by the governor and talk about this year’s NFPA theme: Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware -- fire can happen anywhere. He’ll also be talking about residential fire fatalities in Michigan and how the statewide Community Risk Reduction Task Force is working to reduce fire fatalities. Fact sheets that will cover specific fire safety tips for each week of the month will be made available to all fire departments to share with the public, thanks to the Michigan Fire Inspectors Society. Please join State Fire Marshal Sehlmeyer to learn more about maximizing your outreach efforts to better educate and inform Michiganders about how to minimize fire risk in their homes.

The video chat will also be archived on our Facebook page for those who can’t attend. Registration is not required for the event, however viewers are required to have a Facebook login.
Please share this event with your colleagues in the fire service and the general public. We hope you can participate in this event!

Due to some major computer issues, you are just receiving the legislative update for last week. Please review as it has a budget breakdown included. You will note that we did receive the $2.5M for developing a statewide resource for mental health of first responders. Now, the real work begins on developing our plan for implementation of these funds.
Also, just curious if anyone had any thoughts on the letter to the Governor?
