Fire officials with Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One in Washington State are pleased with the public’s response to this week’s Fire Prevention Week activities. The department teamed up with Domino’s Pizza to deliver fire safety messages and pizza.

In addition, officials attended the annual Scarecrow Festival, using the FPW theme for the department’s display. As families came by to check out the display they were handed FPW stickers and brochures and reminded to check their smoke alarms and replace them if they are 10 years old or older. More than 500 families were reached.

“Thank you, NFPA, for the materials and motivation,” says Prevention Specialist, Nannette Tatom.
