Safety, Health and Survival Week

Today Monday June 20, 2011, through Saturday June 25, 2011, is the annual Firefighter/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week. MCFRS will observe this week in several ways to help ensure our fire fighters safety and well being.

One of the ways MCFRS will be doing this is by honoring those in the past who paid the ultimate sacrifice while in the performance of their duties. On the hour this week, our Emergency Communications Center (9-1-1 Call Center) will make an announcement on our main radio channel remembering a Fire Fighter who lost their life in the line of duty serving the residents of Montgomery County. The announcement will include name, the date and how that Fire Fighter perished and a related safety message.

A good week to honor, remember, and learn.
