Residents of Sparks, Nevada, are very familiar with this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm. The Sparks Fire Department has distributed the FPW poster throughout the community in stores and businesses.

In addition, the department is offering fire safety presentations during October to businesses, schools, day care centers, homeowners’ associations, and civic groups.

FPW activities begin with the 26th annual pancake breakfast/open house October 3rd sponsored by the fire department and the Sparks Firefighters’ Association. (The photo above is from last year’s breakfast).The day includes exhibits of fire prevention materials, live demonstrations, tours of the fire station, a raffle, and puppet show.

Sparks Fire Department Division Chief and Fire Marshal Bob King says Fire Prevention Week in a Box provides the materials the department needs to make the pancake breakfast/open house and all of the community activities a success.
