Fire Prevention Week
Every year during Fire Prevention Week (FPW), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sounds the alarm about keeping our homes and our kids safe from fire. FPW 2015, October 4-10, teaches kids the importance of having working smoke alarms in the bedroom.
Location matters when it comes to your smoke alarm. Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported at night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep? That’s the message behind this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm!”
As a family, complete the Fire Prevention Week Checklist. If all boxes are checked, CONGRATULATIONS. If there are some boxes not checked, work together to help fix the problem.
