Fire Prevention Week
NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION WEEK THEME
Fire Prevention Week for 2021 is October 3-9!
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will keep you and your family safe. When an alarm flashes or makes noises – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – you must take action.

Discussing a Fire Safety Plan with your children is an important step in keeping your family safe in the event of a fire emergency. Our Fire & Safety Activity Book provides a fun and safe opportunity for parents or guardians to talk about the safety tips and facts that are included in it. If you need more information or have questions, call your local fire department, who will be glad to help.
The National Fire Protection Association offers a variety of educational resources. Their site provides a number of tip sheets and activity sheets for kids. Find them at www.nfpa.org/Public-Education.
