ROGERS, AR -- It is Firefighter Safety and Health Week in Rogers, and the local fire department is using a social media campaign to share how it protects firefighters in dangerous environments. The focus of the 2014 Safety and Health Week is "Train Like You Fight" and is geared toward community awareness of measures taken to protect firefighters.
