Blog Post created by Lauren Backstrom Employee on Feb 25, 2013

The NFPA kicked off its partnership with LEGOLAND California Resort this past Friday at the Carlsbad theme park. Last year, it became the official fire-safety partner of LEGOLAND Florida.

In celebration of Firefighter Appreciation Day, local firefighters and their families joined NFPA and LEGOLAND staff for a presentation of “The Big Test,” a show in which an acrobatic troupe engages in comedic attempts to become firefighters, while incorporating essential fire safety messages. The kid-friendly production reminded the audience to check their smoke alarms and practice a home fire escape drill.

During the week, visitors to the park helped put together A LEGO City Mural. The final mural bricks were added by a crew of firefighters from the Carlsbad Fire Department, revealing an image of LEGO first responders. The completed mural, which included over 80,000 LEGO bricks, will be featured in the resort’s Imagination Zone.
