LANSING, Oct. 02 -- The State Of Michigan has issued following Press Release:

Governor Jennifer M. Granholm has proclaimed October 3-9 Fire Prevention Week in Michigan to encourage homeowners to focus on having several functioning smoke alarms to provide the critical early warning needed to escape a home fire.

"Many homes may still have only one smoke alarm and that's simply not enough," said Michigan State Fire Marshal Ronald R. Farr. "Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of the home, including the basement, and in every bedroom -- not just near them, to ensure that everyone is alerted in time to escape fire safely."
