The Home Depot teams up with fire departments to support Fire Prevention Week


Por Susan McKelvey

Each October, The Home Depot runs a month-long fire safety campaign at all its stores (nearly 2,000 across the U.S.) to educate customers about ways to protect their homes and families from potential fire risks. As part of the effort, The Home Depot actively supports Fire Prevention Week by hosting a fire safety day during the campaign in coordination with the local fire department. They also hold two in-store workshopsone involving a craft for kids and another that specifically targets adults.

These pictures taken at an event hosted by The Home Depot in Natick, MA, and the Natick Fire Department show how successful these events are, and how well the partnership works.

To find out details about fire safety day plans in your area, contact The Home Depot nearest you.
