title

By Lisa Braxton

Take the Fire Prevention Week (FPW) 2015 Challenge. Help us reach more people with this year’s important message, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.”

NFPA is looking for fire departments across the United States to show us your best All-Star Fire Safety brochures, Sparky’s Team Up for Fire Safety soft slap bracelets, drawstring sports bags, water bottles and more.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3, as NFPA Public Education Senior Project Manager Karen Berard-Reed explains in this video. Complete the 2015 Fire Prevention Week Challenge application to enter the random drawing. Ten Fire Safety Sports Boxes will be awarded.

*Conducting an activity also fulfills the requirements of FEMA’s Preparathon!® campaign, which works to increase the number of Americans who understand the disasters most relevant to their community, while educating them on ways to be safe and mitigate damage.

Rules

  • Local fire departments and state fire marshals’ offices are eligible to enter.
  • 10 random winners will receive a Fire Safety Sports Box.
  • All entries must be received by midnight October 31, 2015.
  • See the complete list of official rules.
