At this afternoon's Opening General Session during the first day of NFPA Conference & Expo, we announced the theme of the 2014 Fire Prevention Week. To make the announcement, Chairman of the Board Phil Stittleburg joined NFPA's very lovable mascot, Sparky the Fire Dog.
“Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!” is the theme for Fire Prevention Week 2014, October 5-11.
Smoke alarms can make a life-saving difference in a fire, but they need to be working. Unfortunately, many home fire deaths result from fires where a smoke alarm is present but does not operate. This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme focuses on motivating people to test their smoke alarms each month to make sure they’re working properly.
