Text in ornate script of Nevada proclaiming Fire Prevenion Week with governor's signature

The state of Nevada has issued a proclamation for Fire Prevention Week. Governor Brian Sandoval has signed the proclamation, which will be housed on the state website.

Issuing a proclamation on the municipal or state level is an excellent way to shine the spotlight on the work of the first responders in your community, helping to reinforce the lifesaving messages of the annual Fire Prevention Week theme. A proclamation signing ceremony can present a great photo opportunity for the media, and valuable exposure for the fire department.

NFPA streamlines the process with a template you can use to tailor a proclamation to your community.

The Fire Prevention Week section of the NFPA website provides ideas for a number of ways to promote the annual campaign, including an infographic, which can be placed on social media or printed and distributed, a template news release, fundraising ideas and social media messages.
