Memorial Day – Moment of Silence
May 31 @ 3:00 PM – 3:01 PM

The National Moment of Remembrance was established as an act of Congress that asks Americans to pause at 3 p.m. local time to reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day.

Please join us at 3PM EST to observe a moment of silence for the ones who did not come home from service to our nation. May they forever Rest in Peace.

 


 

PRESIDENT CLINTON:
CALLING ON ALL AMERICANS TO JOIN IN A NATIONAL MOMENT OF REMEMBRANCE

“As we contemplate the comforts and blessings of our lives and the well-being of our nation, I ask you to pause just for a moment to remember those who gave their lives to protect the values that give meaning to our lives.”

President Bill Clinton
May 31, 1999

The National Moment of Remembrance program was established to remind Americans of the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces as well as others who have died as a result of service to this nation. Americans around the world should pause and remember these heroes in a symbolic act of unity.

  • Objectives:
    • To raise Americans’ awareness of the honorable contributions made by those who died while defending our nation.
    • To encourage all Americans to honor those who died as a result of service to this nation by pausing for one minute at 3:00 p.m. (local time) on Memorial Day.

Fire Prevention Week
Oct 3 – Oct 9 all-day

How to Observe ​Fire Prevention Week

  • Be Prepared

The purpose of Fire Prevention Week is to bring awareness to the risk of death in case of a fire and provide educational resources to people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic status in order to keep everyone safe.

  1. Make an Escape Plan
  2. Change the batteries in your smoke detector regularly, use daylight savings time as a reminder
  3. Be mindful of where you put your space heaters, keep them away from curtains and other loose fabrics around the home
  4. In the kitchen, never leave food cooking unattended and don’t pour water on a grease fire. Put a lid on it to smother it, turn off the burner and let it cool.
  5. Always, watch the placement of candles and never leave them lit while you are not home

When in doubt, just get out and call 911!
