    Teach families that smoke alarms can make a life-or-death difference with NFPA®'s Smoke Alarms: A sound you can live with! Video.

    Firefighter Jeff, the Drill Sergeant and his trusty Smoke Alarm Squad pay a visit to the Johnson family for a surprise fire safety and smoke alarm inspection and a makeover during an episode of the "Fire Drill Show." Quick quizzes, family challenges, public services announcements, and even a fire drill offer a solid overview of fire safety, smoke alarm, and escape planning fundamentals, including:

    • Handling nuisance alarms in the kitchen.
    • Knowing the difference between photoelectric and ionization smoke alarms.
    • Common fire hazards involving heaters, smoking, and cooking.
    • When to replace smoke alarms -- and where and how to install them.
    • Interconnected smoke alarms.
    • Alarm testing and maintenance.
    • How to make and practice a fire escape plan.

    When you need to cover a lot of fire safety in a brief amount of time this is a great way to do it! Order today and use this video to support your 2015 Fire Prevention Week™ activities -- and deliver key life-saving messages year round. NFPA's clever video mixes live footage and animation in a reality TV show format to make an iron-clad case for smoke alarms.
