NFPA Announces Theme for Fire Prevention Week 2008

Since 1922, the National Fire Protection Association has sponsored a fire prevention campaign each October to raise the public's awareness about the importance of fire safety. Recently, the association announced the theme for the 2008 campaign, and this year it apparently decided to go with the direct approach: "It's Fire Prevention Week--Prevent Home Fires!"

In the United States, eight out of 10 people killed in a fire die in one that has occurred in a home. During the week of Oct. 5-11 and throughout the month, the public is urged to take steps to protect themselves and their homes by learning about how to prevent home fires and taking action.

NFPA's newly launched 2008 Fire Prevention Week Web site (www.firepreventionweek.org) offers safety tips, statistical information, and many other resources. Materials can be used by fire departments, teachers, families, and anyone else interested in learning about how to prevent home fires or looking for resources to help teach others.
