Sparky the Fire Dog has something new that students can give to mom or that special teacher–a free, printable bookmark that states: “These are a few of my favorite things about you.” Two sets of bookmarks are provided, one geared toward mom and one geared toward the teacher. Space is provided so that students can personalize the bookmark, filling in mom or the teacher’s name and a list of all the favorite things.

Just go to the parents and educators section of the Sparky web site.


Sparky® the Fire Dog has the perfect gift for that special mom, grandmother, teacher, aunt, sister, or anyone else in your life. A flower jar. It’s not only easy and fun to make but includes a fire safety tip too. Check out this month’s Cool to Do on the Sparky web site.

NFPA created the program in 1991 to address the risks children under the age of five face regarding fatal home fires. The updated fire safety curriculum integrates literacy, movement, music, and dramatic play to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for preschool-aged children. While it is called a preschool program, the lessons can be used with kindergarten-level students as well.


Five lessons tap into varied learning styles to reinforce safety concepts for young children. You can download the complete program from the NFPA web site. Links are provided for individual lessons.

If you’ve been on the roads of Massachusetts lately you may have done a double take. Sparky the Fire Dog is along for the ride, sharing an important message with the public. He’s featured on NFPA’s new van, used to transport items between headquarters in Quincy and our customer contact center 15 minutes away in Avon. Sparky is reminding everyone to test their smoke alarms and to visit the NFPA web site .
