Fire Service Appreciation Day - January 27, 2010


In January 2009, Governor Ted Kulongoski has issued a proclamation designating January 27, 2009 as Fire Service Appreciation Day. The proclamation recognizes all members of the Oregon fire service who keep our communities safe from the ravages of fire by stopping fires before they start through prevention, suppressing fires after they start, and by investigating fires to determine how they start. The Governor encourages communities throughout the state to show their appreciation and join this observance recognizing members of their local fire departments and districts for their dedication, commitment and sacrifice.


The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is hosting Fire Service Appreciation Day at the OSFM headquarters on Wednesday, January 27, 2010.  A small formal ceremony and brief remarks will begin at 11:00 a.m. Members of the fire service and general public are invited to tour the building to view a variety of displays recognizing members of the fire service for their work in 2009.  Ceremony participants include the Oregon Fire Choir and the Salem Professional Firefighters Pipes & Drums.
