Join the NFPA Song Challenge

FPW13200x200Each year NFPA challenges our blog readers to join the conversation and add to our list of “songs that include the words fire or burn.” The challenge is on. I’ve made my own list of 10 songs and invite you to add to the list. This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is Prevent Kitchen Fires. Can you think of any songs about the kitchen or cooking? I’ve included links for all my songs so you can enjoy the music and get your creativity going. Let’s see how many songs you can add to my list!


Light My Fire (The Doors)

We Didn’t Start the Fire (Billy Joel)

Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash)

Fire and Rain (James Taylor)

Great Balls of Fire (Jerry Lee Lewis)

Something’s Burning (Kenny Rogers) 

Streets of Fire (Bruce Springsteen 

I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire (The Inks)

Burn Baby Burn (The Trammps)

Burning Love (Elvis Presley)

You can make this a Fire Prevention Week activity in your community. During your Open House, invite attendees to add to your list of songs. Make it more challenging – the person adding the song must sing a few lines. Have a raffle with the names of everyone who added to the list. Contact a local restaurant or retail store for gift certificates for your raffle. Of course, Fire Prevention Week in a Box should be part of your event. Order today so you have your materials in time for Fire Prevention Week.

Now, don’t forget my challenge! How many songs can you add to my list?
