Sparky the Fire Dog® talks about NFPA's partnership with The Home Depot during Fire Prevention Week.
Each fall, The Home Depot works to educate customers about ways to protect their homes and families from potential safety risks. This year’s Home Depot campaign runs from September 29 to November 2; the theme is “Care for Your Community”.
As part of those efforts, The Home Depot actively support Fire Prevention Week each October by sponsoring an employee sales contest where top-selling stores will have the option to donate smoke alarms to their local fire departments. The Home Depot also works to educate customers about fire safety through two workshops at its 2,000 stores (approximately) nationwide, as follows:
- On Saturday, October 4, Home Depot stores all across the country are hosting a kids’ fire safety workshop, where kids can build their very own emergency medical truck. Plus, a fire engine or EMT truck will be outside most Home Depot stores, where kids can check them out.
- Check out the Home Depot website for more information about kids workshops on fire safety.
- On Saturday, October 18, Home Depot stores will host a workshop for adults to learn how to install smoke alarms.
