Pledge motivates public to test smoke alarms monthly as Fire Prevention Week approaches

 

September 2, 2014 – The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) today announced the launch of an online smoke alarm pledge in partnership with LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and LEGOLAND® California Resort. The pledge encourages the public to test their smoke alarms each month, and was created to reinforce this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives:  Test Yours Every Month!. Fire Prevention Week is October 5-11, 2014.

 

This October represents the third year NFPA and LEGOLAND Parks have joined forces to promote Fire Prevention Week and its home fire safety messages. Both Parks are planning fire safety events and activities during and leading up to the annual campaign, and will be announced in the weeks ahead.

 

“Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “Teaming up with our LEGOLAND partners to sponsor the smoke alarm pledge presents a fun, simple way to motivate the public to test their smoke alarms monthly, and to help ensure that they’re protected in the event of a home fire.”

 

Participants who agree to take the smoke alarm pledge will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes. The grand prize winner will be randomly selected to receive a trip for up to four people to either LEGOLAND Florida Resort or LEGOLAND California Resort, while another 10 participants will win free tickets to either Park. From today through October 5, families can participate in the pledge by visiting www.nfpa.org/smokealarmpledge.

 

“Safety is a priority for us,” said LEGOLAND Florida Resort General Manager Adrian Jones. “We’re thrilled to team up with NFPA and actively support the smoke alarm pledge, and help educate children on the importance of fire safety.”

 

According to NFPA statistics, three out of every five home fire deaths in the U.S. result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. For more information about smoke alarms and this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, visit www.FPW.org.
