Fire Safety Week, Fire Safety Promotional Items & Fire Prevention Week Giveaways
Fire Prevention Week offers the opportunity to educate communities on ways to prevent fires in the home. From visits to the fire house for elementary and pre school fire safety field trips, to information tables at community centers, Fire Prevention Week can be celebrated by handing out fun, yet educational, promotional products and giveaways.
Fire safety education for children can begin with a fire safety tips coloring book. Fire Prevention Week topics like stop drop and roll, donít play with matches, and other topics for kids fire safety make coloring and activity books a great way to build a foundation of fire prevention. Following the Fire Safety Week lessons up with fun promotional giveaways like custom fire hats, fireman stress balls, and temporary tattoos featuring fire dogs and other fire related designs can reinforce the powerful messages.
Fire safety education for adults can also be a big focus of Fire Prevention Week. Community organizers can hand out materials like the Fire Hazards & Escape Slide Guide and Pocket Guides, complete with a custom imprint of emergency contact information. These items serve to provide fire safety tips, what to do to prevent fires and what to do in case of a fire. Routine battery checks on smoke detectors is another topic that should be stressed during Fire Prevention Week and throughout the year
Rewarding fire department staff for their commitment to keeping the community safe is another aspect of this event that can create involvement throughout the community. Depending on the weather, a fair can be held to inspire support from residents. Local vendors and schools can work with the fire department and government organizations to create an event that will serve to draw attention and raise awareness of the importance of fire safety in schools, workplaces and homes. In addition, firemen and fire department staff can receive accolade for their role in keeping residents safe.
