Community-wide events are at the core of Fire Prevention Week activities in Springfield, Massachusetts.
“When people see the banners and the materials we give out, we always get a big crowd,” says
Springfield Fire Department Fire Inspector/Fire and Life Safety Educator Willie Spears.
He says that Fire Prevention Week in a Box, along with the Sparky® Fire Hats and a few other items offer what the department needs for school libraries, community centers, senior centers, and the local mall.
“They are really effective in getting the community’s attention,” he adds.
