With Fire Prevention Week two months away, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office has plans in place for this year’s FPW kickoff at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville. As in years’ past, the Education and Outreach section of the fire marshal’s office will use FPW in a Box to create goody bags for children. Sparky the Fire Dog will be in attendance, and the Fire Prevention Week banner will be strung between two ladder trucks in front of the Bicentennial Mall entrance.

Officials from the fire marshal’s office typically spend Fire Prevention Week traveling to different events across the state as a show of support to local fire departments. Typically, the Saturday of Fire Prevention Week consists of smoke alarm canvassing.
