NFPA is excited to announce the Fire Prevention Week (FPW) theme for 2015: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.”
Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep. We need your help to spread the message about the importance of having working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.
NFPA has everything you need for a successful campaign. Tools for the fire service, include step-by-step instructions for implementing an FPW campaign, sample news releases and social media posts, sample local and state proclamations, and free customizable safety tips sheets.
Materials for teachers include interactive lessons and activities, music and movement fire-safety videos, free storybook apps, and Common Core-aligned lesson plans, and take home materials.
For kids and families, the Sparky the Fire Dog® web site has tons of fun. Hidden pictures, fun printables and a new smoke alarm checklist to do with the family.
