NFPA is the official fire safety partner for LEGOLAND® Florida and LEGOLAND® California Resort. Each year, NFPA works with each park to promote fire safety through interactive activities and special events for families, including those that recognize Fire Prevention Week each fall.
In 2014, LEGOLAND Florida hosted Firefighter Fridays, where firefighters were on hand to speak to children and their parents about fire safety, and HERO Days, which provided special ticket pricing for active and retired police officers, firefighters and EMS employees in the U.S. LEGOLAND California Resort hosted a one-day fire safety event in September.
SAVE THE DATE! On September 12, 2015, LEGOLAND California Resort will continue its fire safety messaging tradition with its Firefighter Appreciate Day. Stay tuned for more details!
