Arson Awareness Week May 2-8, 2010

This Year's Theme - Community Arson Prevention

Arson is a crime! Did you know that an estimated average of 316,600 intentional fires are reported to fire departments in the US each year causing injuries to 7,825 firefighters and civilians?*

MCFRS would ask you to take a moment to go to the United States Fire Administration (USFA) web site to learn how you can help to prevent arson in your community.

As always, please be safe out there!
