Liberty Mutual Insurance is partnering with Portland Fire & Rescue to launch their annual “Be Fire Smart” Fire Safety Pledge program. Liberty Mutual Insurance will be awarding ten fire agencies across the country a $10,000 grant based on community participation in their fire safety survey.
Through October 31, 2011, firefighters and citizens are encouraged to visit http://www.befiresmart.com/pledge to take the “Be Fire Smart Fire Safety Pledge”, a quiz designed to provide education on fire prevention. Simply complete the quiz and locate ‘Portland Fire & Rescue’ in the drop down menu to receive credit.
As of this morning, PF&R has 67 total credits. The fire agencies that earn the most credits win. If Portland Fire & Rescue earns the $10,000 with your votes, the money will be spent on fire safety educational materials and safety props for the Historic Belmont Firehouse & Safety Learning Center and Fire Museum.
The “Be Fire Smart” Fire Safety Pledge program is not only fun, but provides a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of fire safety. It’s also a great way to support the mission of fire prevention and the firefighters committed to keeping you safe, at Portland Fire & Rescue.
