Importance of Fire Prevention

In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy. Fire safety education isn’t just for schoolchildren—teens, adults, and the elderly all have roles to play. That’s why it’s important for every member of the community to take some time each October during Fire Prevention Week to make sure they understand how to respond safely in case of a fire.

Fire Prevention Week 2021

This year’s FPW campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety,” works to educate everyone about the different sounds that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will help to keep your family, home, and community safe. When an alarm makes noises—whether it’s a beeping sound or a chirping sound—you must take action.

Explore to find educational and social media resources that will ensure every person knows what to do in case of a fire. We have everything from social media assets to videos to downloadable checklists and much more—all the resources you need to keep your family, employees, building residents, and community safe!   Go to to start planning your Fire Prevention Week efforts today!
