FireSafe Montana joins Farmers Insurance for a first-ever Montana Wildfire Awareness Week announcement
Published on 15 June 2009
Fire season is here, and with dry weather comes the threat of wildfires. That is why Farmers Insurance and FireSafe Montana will conduct a first-ever press conference in front of the State Capital on June 18, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. to announce Fire Prevention Week in Montana.
"The purpose of the Fire Prevention Week is to get the word out to every citizen of Montana that fire season is here, and we want you to be prepared," stated Jeff Robinson, Montana State Executive Director. "Farmers and FireSafe Montana, an organization devoted to educating and helping prepare homeowners and their families against the ravages of fires, will continue to work together to help Montana residents stay prepared for future fire disasters."
"Farmers will present a contribution to FireSafe Montana to help continue its fire prevention work throughout the rest of 2009," explained Dwight Easton, Farmers Montana Government Affairs Representative.
"We have prepared a packet of fire prevention materials with information about brush clearance, fire retardant materials, landscaping fire safe and an inventory brochure that can be used to inventory every item in your house. It is a vital document should you unfortunately lose your home to a fire," Easton added.
"This is a very important event that recognizes the collaboration that is taking place and all the hard work local FireSafe councils are doing in their communities," stated Crystal Hagerman, Executive Director of FireSafe Montana. "Without local FireSafe councils, FireSafe Montana's members, insurance agencies, contractors, fire fighting agencies, BLM, DNRC, USFS and many more supporters FireSafe Montana would not be here today."
The fire prevention packets are available at Farmers Insurance agents' offices throughout the state. Anyone wanting a copy should just contact the nearest Farmers agent and order one.
