Fire Prevention Week, October 6-12, is officially here, and we’re encouraging all fire departments and safety educators to make the most of it!

With this year's theme year, Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape.," our ultimate goal is to motivate as many households as possible to develop and practice a home escape plan. Our “Make your plan” page provides all the information needed - please share this resource as you work to promote the campaign in your communities.

We'll also be posting content on our social media platforms each day this week in support of Fire Prevention Week. To kick things off, the above video was posted this morning and is available for you to share. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Although this video is animated, it is intended for adult audiences, not children!)

As we continue to post Fire Prevention Week content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, we encourage you to share these resources as well, so that together we can reach as many people as possible. Meanwhile, our Fire Prevention Week website includes a wealth of free resources, including lesson plans, media materials, videos, activities, and more, which can all be used to help promote the campaign locally - make sure to take full advantage of them! 

Thanks to all of you for your hard work, and best of luck promoting Fire Prevention Week!
