NFPA announces “Don’t Wait: Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” as official theme for Fire Prevention Week, October 9-15, 2016

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) today announced “Don’t Wait: Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” as the official theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 9-15, 2016. The focus on smoke alarm replacement comes as the result of a recent survey conducted by NFPA, which showed that only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are or how often they need to be replaced.
