How smart is the general public about smoke alarms? Sparky the Fire Dog finds out!

By Susan McKelvey

How smart is the general public about smoke alarms? That’s what we wanted to find out!

In support of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm”, we sent Sparky the Fire Dog® out on the street to ask people basic questions about smoke alarms.

In this “Smoke Alarm Smarts” video – the first in a series of four – see what people know (and don’t) about smoke alarms. This clip addresses how often smoke alarms should be tested; the upcoming videos will be posted weekly in anticipation of Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10, 2015, each focusing on a specific smoke alarm message.

Don’t be shy about using these videos! Share them on your social media platforms, post them on your website, or wherever you think you’ll reach the most people with their smoke alarm messages.

For more information on Fire Prevention Week or to find a wealth of resources for promoting the campaign in your community, visit www.firepreventionweek.org.
