Fire Prevention Week (FPW) is fast approaching but across the country, students are going off to college and moving into residence halls, dorms, off-campus housing, sororities and fraternities. For many of these students, it will be the first time they will be on their own, but with this independence, comes responsibility. It is important students realize they are now responsible for their own safety. The last fire safety education they may have had was back in grade school, but both on-campus and off-campus students should understand the risks of fire and know the preventive measures that could save their lives.

Educating students on what they can do to stay safe during the school year is important and often overlooked. College students living away from home should take a few minutes to make sure they are living in a fire-safe environment with our updated easy-to-read tip sheet.

How do you reach out to the colleges in your community?  We’d love to hear from you.

Sparky_column_buttonHave you noticed that Sparky the Fire Dog is now a puppet? This Fire Prevention Week you can see Sparky like you have never seen him before. The lovable, and very fire-smart puppet, has his own channel on

Check out Sparky TV.  You won't see him on the horizontal bars or swimming next to Michael Phelps but you will see him in his first music video and talking about outside meeting places, the sound of the smoke alarm and more. These 30 second video clips are great for the classroom, at home, open houses and community presentations.
