Every year the Cleveland Fire Department makes a major purchase of NFPA products to get ready for Fire Prevention Week. This year the department has bought three sets of Fire Prevention Week in a Box, as well as packages of Sparky’s Coloring Book and Sparky’s ABCs of Fire Safety Video.
The products are kid friendly,” says Lt. Larry Gray, Cleveland Fire Department. “They keep children’s attention and also supply a message.”
Lt. Gray says that you can never spend too much time getting the message across to children and adults about escape planning and fire safety in general. And this year’s theme: “Don’t Wait–Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” is one he says they’ll remember long after Fire Prevention Week concludes.
