Leading up to FPW, Fire Prevention Manager Jerry Clark uses NFPA’s Fast Facts about Fire as his source for posting a daily fact about the dangers of fire on the research center’s Facebook page.


 

He also makes good use of the FPW logo and other graphic elements. “I’ve always used them for everything from website postings to social media, to flyers,” he says.


 

The safety tip sheets are also one of his favorite FPW tools. “We tend to use material closely related to the theme, but also tips that might be part of a targeted campaign.” Clark says this year, he plans to focus on both smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms during FPW.


How about you? What are your favorite Fire Prevention Week materials and how do you use them? We’d love to hear from you.
