Take the Fire Prevention Week (FPW) 2015 Challenge. Help us reach more people with this year’s crucial message “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. 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.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • Conduct a 2015 Fire Prevention Week activity. Be creative or choose one of the activities we have provided.
  • Take a photo of your activity.
  • Complete the online 2015 Fire Prevention Week Challenge application (available September 15) to enter the random drawing for a Fire Safety Sports Box (10 to be awarded).
  • *Conducting an activity also fulfills the requirements of FEMA’s Preparathon!® campaign, which works to increase the number of Americans who understand the disasters most relevant to their community, while educating them on ways to be safe and mitigate damage.

    Rules

    • Local fire departments and state fire marshals’ offices are eligible to enter.
