29 Aug Fire Prevention Week 2008 – Promotional Items
Fire Prevention Week 2008 is rapidly approaching. The National observance will be October 5-11, 2008. The purpose of Fire Prevention Week was establish to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The first Fire Prevention Day was proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson on October 9, 1911 on the 40th anniversary of the Chicago blaze. Fire Prevention Week was created to get people thinking in terms of fire prevention rather than only fighting fire. Fire Prevention Week is sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record.
What a great opportunity to promote Fire Safety with children (and adults) by using fire safety promotional items. There are many options including fire safety coloring books, a fire safety growth chart, fire safety litter bags, fire related stress relievers, and many other fire related promotional items.
