Here’s a place where the Fire Prevention Week theme is hard to miss

For many of us, when we leave the office on a Friday afternoon we can’t wait to put our work behind us, but for one NFPA employee, her work was in front of her and she couldn’t have been more pleased.

Barbara Dunn was driving on highway U.S 1 in Walpole, Massachusetts, when she saw a billboard for this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign. This year’s theme, Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm, is displayed in giant letters along with an image of Sparky the Fire Dog®

Barbara was able to make her way down the road filled with pride for being part of the NFPA family, and countless motorists got to focus—at least momentarily—on the importance of having working smoke alarms where they sleep.
