Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.” NFPA is looking for fire departments across the United States to show us your best FPW activity for a chance to win a Fire Safety Sports Box, which includes one Sparky’s® Team Up For Fire Safety Flag, All-Star Fire Safety brochures, Sparky’s Team Up for Fire Safety soft slap bracelets, drawstring sports bags, water bottles and more.
