NFPA, LEGOLAND Florida and LEGOLAND California Resort launch the 2014 Smoke Alarm Pledge today. Between September 2nd and October 5th, anyone who fills in the submission form (found on www.nfpa.org/smokealarmpledge or NFPA’s Facebook page) agrees to take the “Smoke Alarm Pledge.” This pledge states that you will test each of your home’s smoke alarms each month to ensure they are working. Working smoke alarms save lives making this an important initiative, as well as the theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week.

This downloadable and printable Smoke Alarm Pledge is a helpful reminder for you and your family members.

By taking the Pledge, you will be entered into the NFPA, LEGOLAND Florida and LEGOLAND California Resort Sweepstakes. One randomly selected grand prize winner will win a trip for four to either LEGOLAND Florida or LEGOLAND California Resort (winner’s choice), including admission tickets, airfare and hotel accommodations. Ten randomly selected runners up will win four admission tickets to their choice of park. Please see official rules for details.

Thank you and good luck!
