Safety Source

September 18, 2013 Previous day Next day

Parents' ChoiceParents’ Choice Foundation, the nation’s oldest nonprofit consumer guide to quality children’s media, has chosen the Sparky the Fire Dog® website as a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award winner!

Parents’ Choice serves as a trusted and independent source for educators and librarians, journalists and families searching for quality children’s media and toys. During the lengthy screening process, sparky.org was evaluated for product design and function, educational value, long-term play value, and the benefits to a child’s social and emotional growth and well-being.

Award winners become part of a select group. Fewer than 20 percent of the products submitted to the awards program receive any level of commendation. 

The official Sparky the Fire Dog® website allows kids to explore and learn about fire safety in a safe and interactive environment. The popular ad-free site features sections for children of all ages, even providing voice-overs for younger children who cannot read yet. The diverse activities range from a fire truck section, cartoons, family activities, seasonal Sparky e-cards for kids to send to friends and family, and parent and educator information.

The latest edition of the NFPA Educational Messages Document has been posted. The Educational Messages Desk Reference – 2013 Edition, provides fire and life safety educators with accurate and consistent language for providing safety information to the public. The Educational Messages Advisory Committee, composed of fire and life safety experts and NFPA staff, reviewed and updated the messages, which are used throughout NFPA’s educational programs, tip sheets, community toolkits, Fire Prevention Week campaign materials, and other items.




The 2103 Edition has a whole new look with an eye-catching cover that features a series of photos related to many of the topics in the desk reference. This latest edition includes new messages on smoke alarms, home fire escape, home fire
sprinklers, and carbon monoxide.
