NFPA contest challenges people to test basic fire safety knowledge

Participants enter promotional drawing for iPad mini

December 12, 2013 – The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) launched the fourth and final contest in the series in which participants can test their fire safety knowledge and enter for a chance to receive an Apple® iPad mini®. The contest runs December 9-22, 2013.

“NFPA developed this contest series to give people an easy and fun way to brush up on basic fire safety tips,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA vice president of Communications. “By taking just a few minutes out of their day to participate in this month’s contest, people can take steps to improve their personal safety by learning or reviewing a few basic tips on smoke alarms.”

The contest is available online. Visitors to the contest website will be able to view a brief music video, and take a short quiz based on the information. Quiz-takers will receive one entry for submitting a completed quiz and entry form, and a bonus entry if they share their quiz results on Twitter. For a full set of promotion rules go to
