This Fire Prevention Week, members of the Simsbury Fire District, in Simsbury, Connecticut, will be donning T-shirts featuring the Fire Prevention Week campaign message–Don’t Wait–Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10
Years–along with their fire department logo. Simsbury is one of many departments that purchased the Fire Prevention Week T-shirt Decal, which means the department has the flexibility to do “print-your-own” customizable printing.
Department members won’t be the only ones wearing the T-shirts. According to Assistant Chief/Deputy Fire Marshal Patrick Tourville, the T-shirts will be used as raffle prizes at the department’s open house. Also, he’s looking into getting the wait staff of local restaurants to wear the T-shirts in an effort to keep the campaign in the public consciousness all year round.
“From the decal to other catalog products, such as Fire Prevention Week in a Box, we’ve got everything we need to make the campaign a breeze,” he says. “We have no trouble getting the ball rolling for Fire Prevention Week.”
