You can register at http://shakeout.org/oregon to participate in this practice drill. By registering you will be assisting your community by preparing for an earthquake disaster.
Fire Prevention week is from October 9th-15th. This year's theme is Does Your Smoke Alarm Work? If your smoke alarm is 10 years old or older, replace it. If you rent and do not have a smoke alarm, contact your landlord to get one. Smoke alarms alert you to a fire and gives you and your family time to get out of the house and to safety. Smoke alarms save lives. Does your smoke alarm work?
