SVFD HAS A NEW “WRAP” ON THEIR FIRE PREVENTION TRAILER THANKS TO CW WRAPS!
Spokane Valley Fire Department now has an additional way to spread the word about smoke alarms. We recently had our Fire Prevention trailer “wrapped” with important smoke alarm awareness messages. The trailer will help us transport equipment to various community and fire prevention events.
This new “wrap” was donated by CW Wraps. “I am passionate about fire safety and all public safety,” said CEO and Owner, Sam Carlino. “As a former firefighter, I have seen personally the difference a smoke alarm can make for a family’s safety during a fire.”
Once we are scheduling and attending fire prevention events again, you may see our red trailer on local streets. Not only will you be able to read our messages, but you may also recognize pictures of the local area and including bike trails and the Spokane River. “Wrapping the trailer will provide us with a “Mobile Fire Safety Awareness Sign,” said Spokane Valley Fire Department’s Fire Marshal, Greg Rogers. “It is an additional way for us to share the important messages about smoke alarms.”
– “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep” is a reminder to all of us that we need a working smoke alarm in each and every bedroom or sleeping area of our homes. (It’s important to also have a smoke alarm on every level of the home.)
– “Don’t Wait Check the Date” is our reminder to all of us to check the smoke alarm’s date of manufacturer. You can find that date on the back of the alarm. Remember, smoke alarms expire every ten years so you will need to replace any old or non-functioning alarms. (Carbon monoxide alarms expire too. They last about seven years. You can check their dates on the back of those alarms as well.)
“Anytime we can share fire and life safety messages in the community, we will do it,” said Spokane Valley Fire Department’s Fire Chief, Bryan Collins. “Smoke alarms save lives and homes.”
Thank you CW Wraps for this generous donation!
