Battery Giveaway For Smoke Alarms Underscores Role Of Incentives For Preparedness

May 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I have written before about the importance of offering the public some kind of incentive when it comes to trying to spur preparedness. One example is that New York City Fire Department regularly gives away batteries at public events to encourage New Yorkers to keep their smoke alarms working. Recently, I took this photo of a couple of firefighters distributing batteries (and other fire safety information) at the Tribeca Film Festival neighborhood street fair.
