Ensure a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving

Community outreach campaigns are an effective tool for promoting public safety, and can help foster relationships with city leaders, local businesses, the media and civic groups. The IAFF encourages affiliates to use these kinds of programs to improve their public image and influence how they are perceived by decision makers and the public.

To assist you in these efforts, the IAFF has prepared a sample press release and infographics that can be customized to send to your local media and to citizens about your efforts to promote cooking safety on Thanksgiving.


Download the infographics.

Download the press release. Send the press release (and infographic) to the media as soon as possible. Then, be sure to contact reporters to let them know you are available to discuss tips for ensuring a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Also, use the suggested Tweets below:
