NFPA launches interactive 2014 Fire Prevention Week quiz

FIRE

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is offering an online, interactive quiz for members of the public looking to test their fire safety smarts. The quiz reinforces the messages behind NFPA’s annual awareness campaign, Fire Prevention Week, and its 2014 theme, “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!”

The 2014 Fire Prevention Week Quiz is available online August 1 through October 25  and includes 12 questions on smoke alarm safety and information. This fun, interactive resource lets families see how well-prepared they are for an emergency. Quiz-takers can review their results and compare them with others via Twitter and Facebook.

This year, Fire Prevention Week informs the public about the importance of testing their smoke alarms every month. Unfortunately, many home fire deaths result from fires where a smoke alarm is present but does not operate. Working smoke alarms help save lives by giving people time to get out safely from a home fire.

About Fire Prevention Week NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week since 1922. According to the National Archives and Records Administration’s Library Information Center, Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. The President of the United States has signed a proclamation proclaiming a national observance during that week every year since 1925. Visit www.firepreventionweek.org for more safety information.
