Fire Prevention Week Educational Materials

It would be wrong to say "get them while they're hot," no?

I loved Fire Prevention Week as a kid. The town my elementary school was in had three different fire companies (and yes, a population of, oh, 2,000 or so ...) so they'd all compete to show us kids a good time. One held a coloring contest, and I won three years in a row. Those skills didn't really translate later in life, but still, I was a fantastic whiz with the crayons.

We'd get all sorts of goodies - handouts on fire safety, coloring books, fire hats, pencils, cups and magnets. The highlight of the week was when the firefighters came in and filled one of our classrooms with smoke from smoke machines and we got to climb through it in the dark. At the end-of-week assembly, volunteers from the audience could get up on stage and try on the firefighter uniforms, too, and that was always a good time.

As an adult, I fondly recall all that stuff, and yes, I was learning throughout it. I checked out our selection of Fire Prevention Week giveaways, and I found products that hearkened back to my days in elementary school. They're educational tools that firefighters could hand out during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 5-11.

We offer wholesale Fire Prevention Week coloring books that go over fire safety and fire prevention tips in a fun way that will appeal to children. It reminds me of my days as coloring contest champion - another bonus. These are budget-friendly giveaways, too, at $0.56 each for 500 or more.

In addition, we have a guide that would work for older kids who are beyond the coloring book stage. It's a guide reviewing fire safety emergency action plans, and these pocket-sized guides are sturdy and helpful. These would work great for the middle school set during Fire Prevention Week, and they provide a ton of useful information. There's room at the bottom for the fire company imprint, and laminated pages will last over time.
