Available for Air: Holiday PSAs Encourages Chimney Safety
30-second spots feature humor and a soot-covered Santa Claus
INDIANAPOLIS – Holiday-themed public service announcements on chimney safety produced by the National Chimney Sweep Guild are now available for digital delivery to stations seeking to fill available airtime with calendar-appropriate content.
Each year, more than 25,000 U.S. residential fires that lead to more than $110 million in property loss and damages are blamed on faulty chimneys that have not been properly maintained.
The two complementary NCSG spots running 30 seconds each are good-humored and available for download as Quicktime movies upon request. They feature an annoyed Santa Claus wearing his traditional red suit, which is left covered in soot after trips down dirty, and potentially dangerous, chimneys.
The videos can be previewed on YouTube using the link to spot #1 and the link to spot #2.
The spots encourage annual chimney inspections and cleanings as necessary to reduce the risk of chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other dangers posed by poorly-maintained chimneys. Chimneys are crucial household appliances often overlooked for regular maintenance, because they are often less visible to homeowners when compared to a home’s refrigerator, washer or dryer.
Interested parties, who request copies of the NCSG PSAs, will receive them via YouSendIt, a free service for delivering large digital files directly to your email inbox.
