People may have as little as one to two minutes to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. That’s information everyone should know. Unfortunately, not everyone does. As you’ll see in this "Smoke Alarm Smarts” video – the second in our weekly series of four leading up to Fire Prevention Week – when Sparky the Fire Dog® asks people how long they have to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds, he gets lots of different answers.

As Fire Prevention Week fast-approaches, we’re working to promote basic but vital smoke alarm messages. Please help us spread the word by sharing this video on your website and/or social media.

For more information on Fire Prevention Week 2015, October 4-10, and this year’s theme, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm”, visit www.firepreventionweek.org.

 

 If you take a peek inside of Sparky’s Coloring Book, you’ll be treated to a delightful story about a visit to a firehouse with Sparky the Fire Dog®. This “must-have” for Fire Prevention Week helps young kids learn about smoke alarms and the proper way to respond if they hear a smoke alarm sound in their home.

Another must-have is Sparky’s Activity Book. In this video, NFPA Public Education Division Senior Project Manager Karen Berard-Reed talks about how these materials make learning fun and can enhance your FPW campaign.
