mobile version of our popular Sparky
the Fire

Dog website! The Sparky
the Fire Dog mobile site
, which is accessible on smart

phones and tablets, features kid-friendly short stories, comics, and an

interactive section about fire trucks.

The goal of the new mobile site is to provide
parents with tool they can use to let children explore and  learn about fire safety on the go with the
comfort of knowing the site is ad-free and age-appropriate.

The mobile site will also include a free deluxe interactive
storybook app for ages 3-7, and a free downloadable e-book for ages 7-10 later
this year.

To learn more about the new Sparky mobile site,

news release

through your smart phone or tablet or by going to [ |]. 

Fire Prevention Week is right around the corner and fire departments are busy getting ready. With  budgets being cut, fundraising is more important than ever. This great idea came from the Surry Volunteer Fire Department in Maine. The fire department is holding a contest for kids to name their stuffed fire bear. Once named, the bears will be sold to raise funds for Fire Prevention Week.

Looking for ideas to support your Fire Prevention Week efforts? Check out Sparky's Wishlist. Have a great fundraising idea to share with other fire departments? Let us know. We love to hear about the great things departments are doing in their communities.



Portable medical oxygen in the home has grown over the past decade. Medical oxygen adds a higher percentage of oxygen to the air a patient uses to breathe. When more oxygen is present, any fire that starts will burn hotter and faster than usual.
