In an effort to raise awareness for preventing home fires, LEGO® CITY and NFPA are working together to encourage families to take measures to both prevent and plan for a fire emergency. Through the partnership, both parent- and child-oriented fire prevention tips have been developed and are being distributed nationally in several ways.
- Boston Fire Museum: a large-scale community building event was held on Saturday, October 5 to kick off Fire Prevention Week by bringing the local community together at the Boston Fire Museum to learn prevention tips from the Boston Fire Department and NFPA. Families helped a LEGO Master Builder assemble a larger-than-life Fire Department shield from LEGO bricks and viewed other larger-than-life fire-themed LEGO CITY models. See museum hours and location.
- Home Depot: families who participated in the monthly Kids Workshop on Saturday, October 5 received NFPA and LEGO CITY fire prevention tips and a small, complimentary LEGO CITY building set, while supplies lasted.
- Pottery Barn Kids: families who visited their local Pottery Barn Kids store on Sunday, October 6 received NFPA and LEGO CITY fire prevention tips and a free LEGO CITY mini firehouse model to build and add to their LEGO CITY collection.
