Douglas County Fire Prevention Week

Our Co-op in partnership with Home Depot, State and local agencies and more than 20 retailers is hosting fire prevention week activities from October 7-9, 2009 at Roseburg's Home Depot. Officials have said this will be the largest venue on the entire West Coast. Coordinated by myself, Deputy State Fire Marshal Chris Lyman. A variety of activities, demonstrations and safety education will take place. Other participating agencies include the State Fire Marshal's office, Douglas County Sheriff's office, BLM, US Forest Service, Douglas Forest Protective Association, Oregon Depart of Transportation, Red Cross, Oregon Burn Center, Allied Fire Systems, Bend Fire Protection, Umpqua Valley Fire Services and donation by Seven Feathers Casino, Steamboat Inn, Lemolo Lake Resort, Perfect Look and many more. (This is a non-profit event). There will also be a ferris wheel for the kids and Wildlife Safari with Chettah's, Lions, Tigers and retiles. We also are offering free hot dogs, cotton candy, Pepsi, Coca-cola and cookies from Albertson's. This will be an exciting event and if nothing else invite you down here to Roseburg. I hope this will make not only your community post but possibly have you down for a hot dog and an interview.
