State Fire Marshal Talks Fireworks, Summer Safety, MI Prevention
Watch State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer talk about the new state law on fireworks and what it means, the importance of buying legal, consumer-grade fireworks from registered fireworks retailers, and safety tips when using fireworks. You’ll also learn about MI Prevention, the statewide fire education and prevention program – where thousands of homeowners across Michigan are having smoke alarms and CO detectors installed free of charge by more than 90 fire departments, and how the effort is helping to reduce fire fatalities across the state.
The materials in this Outreach Toolkit are for fire departments to use locally to complement their MI Prevention efforts – when talking with the media, to inform parents, solicit partners, and complement statewide advertising and marketing efforts.
