NFPA hosts FPW luncheon and safety fashion show for older adults

By Lisa Braxton

The event of the season was held at NFPA headquarters this week, a fashion show called “Safety Style Down the Aisle.” As part of Fire Prevention Week, NFPA worked with the Quincy Council on Aging to invite older adults in the community to have lunch and enjoy an injury prevention fashion show. Family and friends of NFPA employees attended as well.

As guests cheered them on, NFPA employees strutted down the runway in costume to showcase safety messages from NFPA’s Remembering When program and this year’s FPW theme: “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month.” Attendees were invited to join the models “on stage” and some did.

In a nod to the glitz and glamour fashion shows are famous for, the cameras rolled and pictures were snapped to capture every moment.

NFPA staff also volunteered as greeters and servers. And, of course, Sparky the Fire Dog got into the act, delighting the crowd.
