Thank You To Oregon Fire Fighters

Oregon State Fire Marshal Mark Wallace is encouraging communities across the state to honor the work of those in the fire service by organizing events or ceremonies for Fire Service Appreciation Day on Monday, January 27th.

“Communities have opportunities to get involved and recognize the work and sacrifice of members of the Oregon fire service,” says Wallace. “From community groups hosting a breakfast, lunch, or dinner, to schools holding essay contests, this day is an opportunity for everyone to say thanks.”

Local recognition in past years included city mayors presenting fire chiefs with a certificate of thanks, fire district boards presenting commemorative coins and certificates to volunteers, newspapers publishing articles and ads thanking members of the fire service, and even citizens taking a local firefighter to lunch.
