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 link to the event can be found here:

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!
