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 2019!
This year’s fire prevention education theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape! Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The theme recognizes firefighters as real life heroes in every community. It also encourages everyone to be their own hero by planning and practicing a safe exit route, from both home and work, in case of a fire. It’s imperative that everyone takes part in this precautionary activity because accidental fires can strike at any time.
Along with an entirely new collection of products featuring the 2019 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 6th through the 12th 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 the End of Next Week – Just about everything on our website can be ordered, customized and delivered in time for the start of FPW. 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 before the end of this time period to guarantee on-time delivery with no necessary rushes.
Up until the week of September 16th to the 20th – Ordering all of your customized products by this time is ideal. This gives your account representative and factories ample time to coordinate, print and ship your products without any unforeseen issues affecting your delivery date. Remember, this is just a helpful guide. If you have to order at a later date, our reps will do everything they can to deliver your items on time. So, just give us a call at 800.378.6376, if you think you might be cutting it close.
The Week of September 23rd to the 27th – If you need delivery no later than the last Friday before the start of FPW on October 6th, we have thousands of custom Quick Ship items that can still make your deadline. To be sure, you should always check with your account representative, so he or she can make certain your products will arrive on time.
After September 30th – 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.
