Are you ready for Fire Prevention month? Your business can take the lead in your community by promoting fire safety. This is something that affects every person in every state, county and town across the country. Your business can help spread the word about fire prevention during the month of October using printed items, which can be handed out to children to educate them about the dangers of fire and how to keep themselves and their families safe.
Each year, fires cause hundreds of avoidable deaths as well as millions of dollars in property damage! However, over 50% of all fires are completely preventable. In many cases, fire is caused by carelessness or lack of common sense in fact, 10% of fires are caused by cigarettes, matches, or other smoking materials; another 10% are caused by unattended candles or stoves, and 10% more are caused by improperly stored chemicals or flammable materials.
By distributing fire prevention products, you can be part of the solution! Help educate children and their families about fire safety with items like:
- Coloring books
- Crayon packs
- Small totes or sacks
- Memo books
- Balsa wood gliders
- Rubber bracelets
All of these custom printed items plus informational brochures about fire hazards can be quickly and easily printed and delivered to your company base by your local Long Island printer in plenty of time for National Fire Prevention Week (scheduled for Sunday Oct. 6 through Saturday, Oct. 12 in 2013)
Every goodie bag full of printed fire prevention items can help a child learn about how they can help prevent fires. Every season we hear about young children who have helped to prevent fires and who have saved lives by showing their parents unsafe conditions in their home.
Even adults can slip up and miss dangers like paint cans stored in warm basements, trash kept too near a furnace, or old rags stored in a closet by a fuse box. A child’s fresh eyes can pick up on these hazards, especially when they have just learned about them thanks to a fire prevention kit!
Don’t forget to have your Long Island print shop add your business information to the fire prevention items you order for your company to distribute. This will mean the items you give away provide a lasting advertisement for your busi9ness – you might be surprised at how many customers remember your name and drop in the next time they need the products or services you provide!
Plan your giveaway in conjunction with a store sale, and pin p some flyers announcing the free gifts or even have a radio spot on Fire Prevention week to drive traffic to your place of business. You can distribute the bags to children from your store, or participate in a larger community event in your town if you like.
This is a great way to serve your community and make life a little safer for everyone living in it! Ask your Long Island printer about fire prevention week items today!
