In support of Fire Prevention Week, CVS pharmacy is donating 500 smoke alarms to customers at five of its stores in New York City over a two-day period. Yesterday, they donated 100 smoke alarms at three locations; another two stores are handing out smoke alarms this afternoon.

Sparky the Fire Dog® has been sharing basic smoke alarm tips on monitors at each of the stores, while fire safety educators from the New York Fire Department (FDNY) have been on site as well, talking with customers and answering their questions.

Partnering with CVS pharmacy during FPW has been a great way to connect directly with New York City residents, and to educate them about the importance of smoke alarms.
