FPW poster helps broaden the campaign’s reach

The staff of the Aurora Regional Fire Museum in Illinois purchased NFPA educational materials last year for the “Youth Firefighter Challenge,” the museum’s fire safety summer camp, and staff members were thrilled when they placed another order for this year’s camp because of a new feature among the Fire Prevention Week catalog items–the FPW poster is two-sided. One side is in English and the other is in Spanish.

“We have discovered that many of the campersparents and grandparents aren’t able to read English,” says Aurora Regional Fire Museum Development Director Mark Baum. “This new poster provides us with valuable information.”

Campers are taught fire safety, physical fitness, and life skills. More than 1,600 children participate. Camp counselors, who are studying fire science during the school year, are employed as firefighter explorers.

Baum says that by purchasing the poster, the FPW theme, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm,” reaches a much broader audience in Aurora.
