Sound the alarm that working smoke alarms save lives!
Did you know that many people don’t test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month!
Don't forget to change the batteries in them at least once a year too!
In addition to connecting with the public through public service announcements, Sparky has a featured role in NFPA's Fire Prevention Week campaign each October. This year schools participated in spreading the word to test your fire alarms every month!!
Looking ahead to fire weeks -
