By Susan McKelvey

Semaine de la prévention des incendies (FPW) is just around the corner – October 5-11 to be exact. Here’s an overview of what’s heating up for this year’s campaign, “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!”

  • In coordination with our FPW 2014 partners – LEGOLAND®, Domino’s® Pizza, CVS Pharmacy and The Home Depot – we’ll be promoting FPW in the coming weeks through a series of fun, engaging events and initiatives. Take a look at our Partners in Safety section for details on how we’re working with each of them.
  • We’re now entering the fourth week of our online smoke alarm pledge, where families who commit to testing their smoke alarms monthly are automatically entered into a grand prize sweepstakes. One randomly selected winner will receive a trip for up to four people to either LEGOLAND® Florida Resort or LEGOLAND® California Resort. The downloadable/printable pledge form is available through October 5.
  • Our FPW website offers a wealth of resources to communicate this year’s theme, including ways to team up with the local schools to educate kids about the importance of smoke alarms. The site also offers great smoke alarm advice, tips and information for adults.
  • Last but not least, Sparky the Fire Dog’s® FPW page features activities that make learning about smoke alarms and fire safety really fun for kids, while Sparky’s Schoolhouse features a new, interactive storybook app, “The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms”, which is one of the most downloaded apps on iTunes!
