title

By Lauren Backstrom

NFPA and The Home Depot are working together to promote the importance of working smoke alarms in support of Fire Prevention Week’s 2014 campaign, “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!".

“Teaming up with NFPA to promote Fire Prevention Week helps reinforce important fire safety messages among the thousands of customers who enter our stores nationwide each day,” says Hila Roberts, merchant, fire safety, for The Home Depot. “Where smoke alarms play a key role in home fire safety, NFPA’s information and resources help educate the public about the extreme importance of smoke alarms in the home. Partnering with them enables us to educate our customers to buy the right alarms to keep their families safe.”

Each fall, The Home Depot helps educate customers about ways to protect their homes and families from potential fire risks with a month-long safety campaign. Cette année, that campaign includes the following two in-store workshops:

  • On Saturday, Octobre 4, The Home Depot stores all across the country are hosting a kidsfire safety workshop, where kids can build their very own emergency medical truck. Plus, a fire engine or EMT truck will be outside most stores, where kids can check them out.
  • On Saturday, Octobre 18, The Home Depot’s U.S. stores will host a workshop for adults to learn how to install and maintain smoke alarms.
