Fire Prevention Week

Getting Prepared for Fire Prevention Week 2016


Fire Prevention Week is on its way! Are you prepared? Well, there’s no need to panic if you’re not quite ready yet, because Foremost Promotions has you covered! Here is your official guide to getting prepared for Fire Prevention Week 2016!

The Theme 


This year’s fire prevention education theme is “Don’t Wait: Check the Date!” These words encourage everyone to remember to replace their smoke alarms every 10 years. It’s imperative that we always keep our smoke detectors at their maximum efficacy, and the only way to do that is through regular maintenance and complete replacement every 10 years.

New Products 


Along with an entirely new collection of products featuring the 2016 Fire Prevention Week Theme, we have a slew of brand new stock and custom fire prevention educational giveaways to help you keep your community interested and informed throughout FPW. All of these products can be found in our New This Month Specialty Store, where more fresh products are being added every day.

When to Order


This year, Fire Prevention Week will be held from October 9th through the 15th and we want to make sure you can get a head start on gathering all the educational and promotional materials you might need to help make the most of the important national event. That’s why we’re providing you with this simple timeline to help you plan – and shop – accordingly.

From Now until Labor Day – Absolutely everything on our website can be ordered, customized and delivered in time for the start of FPW. This includes products with extra long production time, like customized lollipops.

Up Until September 12th – If your products have a 12 day production time, such as custom plastic take-home or litter bags and stuffed animals, you’ll want to place your order by this time to guarantee on-time delivery with no necessary rushes.

Up until the week of September 19th to the 23rd – All custom products should be ordered by now. This gives your account representative and factories ample time to coordinate, print and ship your products without any unforeseen issues affecting your delivery date.

After the week of September 23rd – We have thousands of custom Quick Ship items that can still make your deadline, but to be sure, you should always check with your account representative so he or she can make certain your products will arrive on time.

Last minute rush orders – All In Stock items are available to ship within 24 hours of your placing your order, but as FPW draws near, there may be many other customers ordering at the last minute as well. You will also want to consider shipping time which can take up to 5 business days without rush service. It’s best to call and speak with your account representative so he or she can help schedule a delivery that suits your needs.
