“Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety™!”
Fire Prevention Week 2021 is October 3rd-9th!

This year’s Fire Prevention Week™ theme, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety™,” puts the focus on educating children and adults about smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms, their necessity, and how the sounds they make help save lives. Whether you’re making one presentation or 100, there are all sorts of ways to get people in your community involved in Fire Prevention Week. Stock up on educational brochures, stickers, fire hats, coloring books and sheet pads, posters, Sparky the Fire Dog® value packs, and other materials that make great giveaways during your Fire Prevention Week.
