Attention Christmas carolers: NFPA places sprinkler spin on a holiday tune

title

By Fred Durso, Jr.

Sick and tired of singing or hearing “Jingle Bells” for the umpteenth time this year? Don’t fret: the ingenious minds at NFPA have placed its stamp on the holiday classic. For those looking to add something new to the family’s holiday singalong, or if you’re simply looking to impress Aunt Edna, try the following song on for size.

Sung in the same fashion as “Jingle Bells,” NFPA’s version, “Sprinkler Save,” adds a little levity to a proven, life-saving device. And for those wondering: “Who the heck is Dude the Cat?” Read this.

Kudos to NFPA’s Marty Ahrens for crafting the lyrics.

Dinner’s on the stove

Fried chicken on its way

Kids get in a row;

It’s just another day

I go back around

To break up their darn fight

When the smoke alarm starts to sound

The flaming pan’s a sight.

Oh, sprinklers save, sprinklers save

Sprinklers save the day

Sprinklers keep the fire small

While help is on the way, Hey!

Sprinklers save, sprinklers save

Sprinklers save the day

Sprinklers keep the fire small

While help is on the way.

Apartment fire call

Smoke and screams inside

Firefighters kick in door

Search for those who cried

Couch had been on fire

Sprinkler on it rained

Dude the cat was good and mad

But the fire was contained.

Oh, sprinklers save, sprinklers save

Sprinklers save the day

Sprinklers keep the fire small

While help is on the way, Hey!

Sprinklers save, sprinklers save

Sprinklers save the day

Sprinklers keep the fire small

While help is on the way!

Happy Holidays from NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative team! Here’s to a safer 2015!
