Home Fire Sprinkler Week is Going Virtual

A message to the fire service: We realize you are grappling with increased calls and many other significant challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate your interest in Home Fire Sprinkler Week. As public events are not currently advisable this year, we’ve created a digital campaign – an easy and effective method of communication. These free tools will help you carry out a virtual campaign to reach the folks in your community, on one day or on each day of the campaign. We welcome your participation and we thank you for your work and your commitment to home fire safety.

Home Fire Sprinkler Week 2020

Help Us Fill the Digital World with Life Safety Messages

Can you imagine how many people we can reach if we all share the same messages at the same time? This is an opportunity for the fire service to bring together their digital voices and spread the word about the life saving benefits of home fire sprinklers. We have the tools to do it. We hope you’ll join in!

The Campaign is Simple:

• Use the daily messages below to plan your week.

• Every day there is a different theme and we provide the content.

You can choose a video or graphic or both each day.

These can be posted on your website, Facebook, Twitter or all of the above! Let’s flood the Internet with facts about home fire sprinklers this week!
