2022 Fire Prevention Week is October 9 through 15!
Join NFPA® in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week™ (FPW). This year’s FPW campaign, “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape™,” works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.
Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning.
We encourage the public to promote fire safety, especially with children. Fire prevention and safety information including lesson plans, games, and videos, are available on this page's side menu and at www.Nfpa.org/fpw.
