Get to know Fire Preventon Week with new video

By Lisa Braxton

It just got a little easier to learn about new resources from NFPA to help you make your 2015 Fire Prevention Week a success. In a new video, NFPA Public Education Division Senior Project Manager Karen Berard-Reed gives highlights on materials for the fire service, teachers, and kids and families.

There’s the infographic in different formats that the fire service can place in local newspapers and on social media as well as the 30-minute coffee time chat, a guide for a conversation on the topic of smoke alarms and the importance of having working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.

The video also provides details about educational tools on Sparky’s School House for teachers and activity sheets for kids and families.
