State Requests Support for Firefighters

firefightersSALEM, Ore. — State and local officials are asking you the show support to firefighters this week.

Monday is Fire Service Appreciation Day. In 2007, the Oregon legislature established this day specifically to express appreciation to those who risk their own safety and well-being to protect the public.

The State Fire Marshal, Mark Wallace, wants Oregonians to say thanks to the men and women working to keep us safe. To learn more about fire service appreciation day, you can find a link to the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s website.
