While cruising through Las Vegas for NFPA’s 2014 Conference and Expo, NFPA’s official mascot Sparky the Fire Dog® made a special visit to the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Las Vegas (BGCSLV) this morning. In front of some 50 children ages 5 to 11, Sparky held a fun, informative fire safety lesson that focused on the importance of smoke alarms and testing them monthly. He also wagged his tail to NFPA’s “What’s that sound?” video, which reminds everyone that if you hear a “beep, beep, beep, if there’s a fire, you’ve got to move your feet!”
A special thanks to the Northern Las Vegas Fire Department who also participated in the event and brought along their fire truck, sharing cool facts about how they use it to fight fires. Last but not least, a huge kudos to the parents of all the BGCSLV children – they were an incredibly polite, well-behaved group!
