Sparky chats with fans in Chicago about smoke alarms

title

By Lauren Backstrom

While in Chicago, for NFPA Conference & Expo, Sparky stopped by Millennium Park to chat with some of his fans. One of Sparky’s favorite things is being able to talk with people about fire safety, so we brought him out on the street and chatted with a bunch of fans to see just how much they knew about smoke alarms.

We asked questions like, “Name 3 rooms in your home that need a smoke alarm,” and “How long do you have to escape your home after a smoke alarm sounds?” and even “How often should you replace your smoke alarm?” Would you know the answers to these questions if Sparky asked you on the street?! We will be working on some fun videos showcasing everyone’s answers in time for Fire Prevention Week, so stay tuned!
