With Fire Prevention Week right around the corner (October 7-13, 2018), we thought we would take the opportunity to highlight something from our FPW Archives. Fifty years ago, when Sparky the Fire Dog was still just a puppy, NFPA designed and distributed book covers as part of their Fire Prevention Week campaign materials. These covers not only provided kids with a groovy way to protect their books, they also offered helpful tips on how to stay safe in the event of a fire.
For more information regarding this and other moments in fire history, please feel free to reach out to the NFPA Research Library & Archives.
The NFPA Archives houses all of NFPA's publications, both current and historic.
Library staff are available to answer research questions from members and the general public.
