Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio signed a proclamation declaring fire prevention week and fire prevention month.

Guam – Tenorio says that the Guam Fire Department has some of the finest personnel and management anywhere on the globe. In addition, he says GFD has added some new fire equipment over recent years improving their ability to protect the community from fires. However, the protection from fires all begins with fire prevention.

“Governor Calvo and I urge all of you and all island residents to develop a home fire escape plan with all members of the household and practice it twice a year,” said Tenorio.  The Lt. Governor also commended all fire personnel on Guam for their commitment to keeping the residents of Guam safe from fire.
