[Fire Prevention Week | http://www.fpw.org] (FPW) kicks off October 6 through October 12 and NFPA is encouraging the public to prevent kitchen fires. The kitchen is the leading area of origin for home fires and most kitchen fires are caused by cooking. On average, there are roughly 3,000 reported kitchen fires per day in the United States.


 

The FPW website is the central portal for information and resources to help families, teachers, community leaders, and fire officials spread the word about cooking safety.


The
site includes fire safety tip sheets, fire statistics, a family safety
checklist, Sparky the Fire Dog® activities for kids and public service
announcement videos. Videos on the site include "Sparky’s Kitchen
Rules," a fire safety song for kids, and safety tips from Sparky’s Aunt
Dottie.


 

Hope you are doing your part to energize your community during FPW and don’t forget to include home fire sprinkler messaging in your outreach activities this week and throughout the year.
