Fire Prevention Week is coming up on October 6th-12th. Each year Fire Prevention Week highlights the importance of fire safety education. Across the nation, fire departments are dealing with budget cuts and therefore they may not be able to fund educational materials. Reaching kids and parents through these programs is critical for saving lives.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has created an online tool to help community members, businesses and others fund local departments’ fire education programs called Sparky’s Wish List. Through Sparky’s Wish List, fire departments register for the Fire Prevention Week materials that they need and invite others to purchase them.
Let’s help the people who are willing to put their own lives on the line each and every day.
Time for Thoughtful Thursday. Go on and link up!
