Fire Prevention Week, 2014

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Fires can take lives, devastate communities, and 
                destroy our homes and businesses. They pose a threat to 
                Americans across our Nation, and they cost us billions 
                of dollars each year. As we mark Fire Prevention Week, 
                we emphasize the importance of taking steps to prevent 
                fires, and we recognize the selflessness of those who 
                answer the call to fight these blazes, placing 
                themselves in danger to help others.

                All Americans can protect themselves by taking 
                precautions to guard against fires. This week's theme, 
                ``Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month,'' 
                reminds us of the importance of installing and 
                maintaining smoke alarms in the places we live and 
                work. Powerful and unpredictable, fire spreads rapidly 
                and widely. That is why I encourage every American to 
                develop and practice fire evacuation plans that will 
                allow for swift exits from regularly visited places. It 
                is our responsibility to teach our children about fire 
                prevention and do everything we can to protect our 
                loved ones during these emergencies. To learn more 
                about fire safety, visit www.Ready.gov.

                This year, our Nation has suffered tragic losses as 
                wildfires ravage States across our country. As 
                wildfires increase in frequency and intensity in a 
                changing climate, fire prevention and planning only 
                become more urgent. My Administration continues to take 
                action to increase our Nation's preparedness and 
                resiliency, and every person can do his or her part. 
                Americans who live near woodlands should clear 
                flammable vegetation away from homes and buildings, and 
                everyone can be ready by making an emergency kit and 
                discussing evacuation routes and emergency plans with 
                their families.

                We owe a great debt to our brave first responders and 
                firefighters who run toward the scene of a disaster to 
                fight fires. They are heroes who demonstrate courage, 
                determination, and professionalism every day as they 
                battle flames and smoke and teach their neighbors how 
                to protect themselves. During Fire Prevention Week, we 
                recognize our duty to be vigilant and take action to 
                avert fires, and we remember the sacrifices of those 
                who gave their lives so others might live.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States do hereby proclaim October 5 through 
                October 11, 2014, as Fire Prevention Week. On Sunday, 
                October 12, 2014, in accordance with Public Law 107-51, 
                the flag of the United States will be flown at half-
                staff at all Federal office buildings in honor of the 
                National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. I call 
                on all Americans to participate in this observance with 
                appropriate programs and activities and by renewing 
                their efforts to prevent fires and their tragic 
                consequences.
