Calling all U.S. fire departments: Are you ready for your close-up?

Blog Post created by laurenbackstrom Employee on Sep 12, 2016


Fire departments that think they’re worthy of some “flashy” attention should start getting camera-ready: Between now and October 7, 2016, we are hosting our first-ever “Get Ready for Your Close-Up” catalog contest, where one U.S. fire department will be randomly selected to receive a professional photo shoot for the cover of our 2017 Fire Prevention Week catalog.


Along with being on the cover, photos and stories highlighting the daily tasks and efforts of the winning department will be featured throughout the catalog, which will be distributed next May to fire departments, safety advocates, educators and other groups nationwide. First Alert, a leading smoke alarm manufacturer, is actively supporting the contest by donating 500 smoke alarms to the winning fire department as well!


To enter your fire department in the “Get Ready for Your Close Up” catalog contest, sign up on NFPA’s website between now and October 7, 2016. One fire department will be randomly selected and announced during Fire Prevention Week. For more information, read NFPA’s official contest rules and regulations.
